Things We Love: Seven Gates of Jerusalem
"Seven Gates of Jerusalem" is a performance that premiered on the date of the composer’s 75th birthday. Combining classical music, ballet, and animation, the concert proved to be an extraordinarily creative idea, while the two orchestras and three choirs involved in the project illustrate its sheer scale.
Initially conceived as a television production, the performance later spawned an Emmy Award-nominated musical/dance film.
I love the inteplay of classical work and current technology. More on the concept and creation can be found here.
