February 23rd 2019: love fail

Contemporary composer David Lang’s love fail has been called a meditation on the timelessness of love weaving texts from Tristan and Isolde, adapted by the composer from a variety of source texts, together with contemporary poetry by Lydia Davis. The SSAA piece was originally scored for a vocal quartet, and in our performance, audiences will be delighted to hear the full ensemble as well as a variety of quartets and octets, showing off the range of voices of Oriana. This performance marks the Canadian première of the choral arrangement. Our presentation will also feature Ceinwen Gobert, renowned for her dancing in Luminato’s presentation of “Bearing” and Soundstreams’ series concert “Northern Encounters,” who has choreographed a solo dance for the work.
