You still can get to see one of the great events participating in Lincoln Center’s fourth multidisciplinary White Light Festival that ends on November 23. The Festival’s focus is the power of art to illuminate the many dimensions of our interior lives, with a particular emphasis this year on the power of the voice. Spanning numerous musical traditions, genres, and disciplines, the Festival
offers performances, films and events by artists and companies from more than a dozen countries.

There are a couple of events coming up, definitely worth noting: 

** Era la Notte, the acclaimed one-woman staged concert in which Soprano Anna Caterina Antonacci portrays passionate female characters from four works by four 17th-century Italian composers: Biagio Marini, Pietro Antonio Giramo, Barbara Strozzi and Claudio Monteverdi.

** Malian singer-songwriter, Rokia Traoré, “Africa’s most interesting and genuinely experimental contemporary musician” (Daily Telegraph-London), returns to the White Light Festival performing work from her latest, critically-acclaimed, and most rock-influenced album to date, Beautiful Africa.

** Mark Morris Dance Group, one of America’s most beloved modern dance companies, has made frequent appearances at the Mostly Mozart Festival in recent years. Now the company returns for its first White Light Festival appearance with choreographer Mark Morris’ landmark work, Handel’s pastoral ode L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato (“The Merry Man, the Thoughtful Man, and the Moderate Man”). Nicholas McGegan will lead the MMDG Music Ensemble and soloists.

These events are happening between now and November 23. For dates and times, please visit > WLFest.
