AOP to premiere staging of Arvo Pärt's "L'Abbe Agathon"
AOP is proud to announce that on January 11 & 12, 2009 we will partner again with Works & Process at the Guggenheim to present two monodramas set to the music of acclaimed Estonian composer Arvo Pärt. Half of the evening will be a dance piece choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon and the other half will be AOP's premiere staging of Pärt's 2004 composition L'Abbe Agathon, to be dramatized by famed visual artist Sophie Calle. The performers of these two monodramas will be Lauren Flanigan, Wendy Whelan and Albert Evans. AOP & W&P previously collaborated on the workshops of Darkling and the world premiere of Romulus. Stay tuned to the AOP events page for updates.
