After a fall of nationwide touring and our first tour to Europe (!), A Far Cry returns to Jordan Hall with “The Long Gaze” – a wide-ranging program that is a veritable hometown LOVE FEST! Tufts University composer John McDonald presents the world premiere of his newly-commissioned work. “Gentle but Uneasy Dance Music.” Benjamin Britten’s haunting “Les Illuminations” features not one but two local stars: soprano Kristen Watson and tenor Zachary Wilder. Anton Webern’s early String Quartet (1905) provides an otherworldly interlude before Kristen and Zachary return for a rocking selection of Kurt Weill songs, in new arrangements by Nicholas Urie.
