The Forest is Young and Full of Life

“…part of a trend of multidisciplinary ensembles with genre-defying approaches that appeal to smart, adventurous young audiences.”
– Anne Midgette, The New York Times

“…crackling virtuosity…their music grabs the listener by the lapels and refuses to let go.”
– John Von Rhein, Chicago Tribune

In the 1960’s Italian composer Luigi Nono turned to theater and electronics to express his political sentiments outside of the constraints of the concert hall. Nono’s bold anti-war statement, A floresta é jovem cheja de vida (The Forest is Young and Full of Life (1966) blends his experiments with the human voice, traditional instruments and electronic playback into a self-contained dramatic work. ICE is proud to present this work in collaboration with world-renowned soprano Tony Arnold and director Habib Azar.
