Juxtaposing poetry of political repression against religious texts, MacMillan's Cantos Sagrados protests against the disappearances of the politically inconvenient. The striking dissonance propels us unceremoniously into the violence of 1970s Latin America. NYCoS returns to the Fringe with this savage yet beautiful piece after last year's acclaimed performance, prompting MacMillan himself to say I have rarely been so impressed by a performance of this work. Also featuring Vivaldi's celebrated choral masterpiece, Gloria. Opening with a joyous chorus, this triumphant work is filled with an array of rich contrasts that will thrill and move.
