About This Performance


“There’s a woman lived in the woods on the outskirts of town. Her skin was chocolate brown. Upon her head she wore a crown of bones.” With these powerful words, Cécile McLorin Salvant begins her extraordinary song cycle Ogresse, a stunning fairy-tale suite with very real implications. This genre-hopping big-band work is the most ambitious project yet from a remarkable talent.
