David Lang’s Pulitzer Prize winning The Little Match Girl Passion, directed and designed byJosh Armstrong is inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s heart-breaking tale and J.S. Bach’s St Matthew Passion. In a unique presentation of this previously un-staged masterpiece, the tragic story of the little match girl is brought to life by vocal ensemble and percussion. Reverent and gracious, J.S. Bach’s commemorative masterpiece Jesu Meine Freude acts as a poignant precursor to the fragile beauty of the little match girl.
