"Seven Words was an ambitious and thoughtful project."-New York Times
Returning to the Met after a critically acclaimed premiere in 2013, Seven Words is a music-video work that enfolds Haydn's transformative Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross with a compelling and evocative video environment by Ofri Cnaani. For this performance, which takes place during Holy Week, Attacca performs the string quartet arrangement of the piece, and collaborates with Cnaani on its staging and direction.
