KIRSTEN LUCE FOR THE NEW YORK TIMES

In this multimedia oratorio by composer Ted Hearne, four singers inhabit a fever-dream assemblage of media to explore the hysteria surrounding Chelsea (formerly Bradley) Manning.
The primary-source libretto was culled from Iraq/Afghanistan War Logs.  One of the most intense,beautiful and terrifying pieces I have been a part of.  The  NY Times review describes the power and simplicity of this multi-media experience. http://nyti.ms/1tAjjQb
