Virtues and Vices
Part of the Atlas INTERSECTIONS Festival 2018
Performance begins at 5:30.
Considering the seven deadly sins, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, pride, lust and envy, shows a bleak view of the world. But the all-female vocal ensemble, Sopranessence, has not given up hope. The ensemble is determined to find out how these vices hold up against the virtues of temperance, patience, kindness, purity, charity, diligence and humility. Discover how different composers depicted human vices and virtues, and decide which side triumphs!
Content information: Swearing or coarse language – rare or mild. Best suited to ages 13+.
Sopranessence is an ensemble dedicated to “rebooting classical music” by breaking the modern stereotype that this kind of music is stuffy and distant. The result is an ensemble of talented and accomplished sopranos who enthusiastically blend their voices in fun and unique arrangements of opera, musical theatre, and other American songbook classics. Public performances awaken audiences from all walks of life to see classical music as an art form meant for everyone, one that mirrors our joys, shortcomings, dilemmas, and passions – the shared experiences expressed by this wonderful art form!
