Two world-renowned ensembles and a sensational soprano collaborate in the world premiere of a new song cycle by Philadelphia composer David Ludwig, chair of composition at the Curtis Institute. The Anchoress is a monodrama that imagines the life of a medieval mystic, merging the sounds of ancient and modern worlds to explore issues of faith, isolation, and social power.
