On Behalf of Nature
Meredith Monk & Vocal Ensemble

For her newest music-theater work, Meredith Monk offers a poetic meditation on our intimate connection to the natural world and the fragility of its ecology.

Drawing inspiration from writers and researchers who have sounded the alarm on the precarious state of our global ecosystem, Monk and her acclaimed Vocal Ensemble create a space where human, natural, and spiritual elements are woven into a delicate whole, illuminating the interconnection and interdependency of us all. “A rapturous new work…some of the finest music Monk has yet written.” (Los Angeles Times)

Pre-Performance Talk. 7:30 pm, Power Center Lobby.
