World Premiere of Niloufar Talebi’s Ātash Sorushān (Fire Angels) at Carnegie Hall
Butterfly Buzz announced today the world premiere of Ātash Sorushān (Fire Angels), a libretto written by writer, theater artist, and award-winning translator, Niloufar Talebi, at Carnegie Hall in New York on March 29, 2011, and the West Coast premiere at Cal Performances in Berkeley on April 3, 2011.
Co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall, Cal Performances, and Meet the Composer, Ātash Sorushān (Fire Angels) tells a story that builds bridges to greater understanding and invites reflection on a decade following September 11, 2001 – an event which ultimately inspired the creation of this work. The music for Ātash Sorushān is written by Mark Grey, and the soprano Jessica Rivera performs the piece. Conductor Donato Cabrera leads premiere performances.
