Da Camera presents Julia Wolfe’s Anthracite Fields in the Cullen Theater at Wortham Theater Center.
Anthracite Fields is a detailed oratorio, with an original video about turn-of-the-20th Century Pennsylvania coal miners, that was awarded the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Music.
This haunting, timely work draws on oral histories, interviews, speeches, geographic descriptions, children’s rhymes, and coal advertisements to provide an intimate look at a particular slice of American life.
The always-adventurous Bang on a Can All-Stars join Da Camera’s frequent artistic collaborators from Houston Chamber Choir. Admission Tickets start at $37.50. Click here: link to order tickets or for more information.
