Program Notes

Across windswept dunes and barren plains, this eerie tale is whispered to us on the hot breath of the desert. It's a depiction of the ghostly dances of immortals who are not bound by the confines of their tombs, but are free to roam among the living. Haunting whispers and chants from the ensemble combine with pulse-pounding melodies to create a thoroughly spooky and spine-tingling programming selection.
