Anthracite Fields in Wroclaw

Julia Wolfe’s Anthracite Fields – May 19

Julia Wolfe’s Anthracite Fields at Zankel Hall on May 19!

The 2018 Carnegie Hall performance of Julia Wolfe’s Pulitzer Prize–winning Anthracite Fields was one of the season’s most unforgettable events. Inspired by the lives of Pennsylvania coal miners, Wolfe uses oral histories, interviews with miners and their families, speeches, and children’s stories in moving musical tableaux that depicts their plight. Hear this “major profound work” (Los Angeles Times) for the first time or be moved by it once again.

Performed by:

The Choir of Trinity Wall Street – Lidiya Yankovskaya, conductor

Jeff Sugg, Scenography and Projection Design
