Written in response to the Nazi’s infamous Kristallnacht of 1938, Tippett’s secular oratorio, with its inspired use of Afro-American spirituals (Steal Away, Nobody Knows the Trouble, Go Down Moses, Deep River), has endured as a universal statement about horrific conflict and ways of healing.
In music that is both of, and ahead of its time, Brett Weymark conducts the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and a massive choir drawn from all walks of life across the city for this unique event.
