About This Performance
Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro is one of the most rapturous pieces of music ever composed, the kind of work that’s so moving, you want to listen to over and over again. And that’s precisely what happens in Ragnar Kjartansson’s Bliss – for twelve hours. Through extreme repetition, an excerpt from Mozart’s original composition moves from elegant to ironic to ecstatic, finally returning to its original delicacy and joy but freighted with the emotional and physical toll of the experience.
The West Coast premiere will be a fully staged production, accompanied by experimental classical ensemble wild Up, under the direction of Christopher Rountree. Tickets for this performance will go on sale on a later date.
