Profoundly emotional. Deeply devotional. Sublimely beautiful. Antonín Dvořák’s Stabat Mater is a sensitive and humble setting of the Crucifixion story, seen through the eyes of Mother Mary. The text, attributed to the medieval Italian Franciscan monk Jacopone da Todi, explores themes of grief, love, faith, compassion, and ultimately, hope. Despite the solemn subject matter, the overall tone of the work is positive and life-affirming. The Tulsa Opera Signature Chorale, the Tulsa Opera Orchestra, and four talented soloists, under the baton of Artistic Director Aaron Beck, join forces to offer an evening of transcendence from despair to hope, anguish to ecstasy, darkness to radiant light. Sung in Latin with English translation provided. Accompanied by orchestra.
