The New York Philharmonic’s climactic season finale is the World Premiere of Pulitzer Prize winner David Lang’s (CRF 2003) opera Prisoner of the State in a fully staged production directed by Elkhanah Pulitzer. A retelling of Beethoven’s Fidelio, the bold new opera chronicles a woman’s attempt to rescue her husband from unjust political imprisonment. The action unfolds around the musicians of the Orchestra, who are both observers of the story and participants in the prison.
