Earth Requiem and Rebirth Sep 9 2023
NEW YORK, NY – Earth Requiem was conceived by Greenwich Village-based artist/activist Diana Wege. It is a multidisciplinary work that seeks to unify people of divergent faiths and convictions through a shared love for the planet. She collaborated with the five time Emmy-winning composer Jeff Beal, best known for his scores for House of Cards, Monk and Pollock; and Errollyn Wallen, MBE, CBE, one of the UK’s most critically acclaimed living composers. Errollyn’s segment is a world premiere. Diana Wege‘s work was selected to represent the US in the 2023 Jerusalem Biennale. The choir will be led by renowned conductor Mark Shapiro, “Captivating…Conductor Mark Shapiro led with crisp elegance.” – Richard Termine, OPERA NEWS
Earth Requiem confronts climate change, pollution, resource depletion, and nuclear proliferation, and works toward restoration by the reversal of humanity’s destructive ways. For more program info, visit The Village Trip.
