Puts The Hours (concert version—world premiere)
The Hours, a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Michael Cunningham and an award-winning film, chronicles a day in the life of three women from three different eras with interwoven stories connected to Virginia Woolf’s novel Mrs. Dalloway. Though separated through time by nearly 80 years, Virginia Woolf, Laura Brown, and Clarissa Vaughan (a modern-day Mrs. Dalloway herself) struggle with the notion of living their lives for someone else. This spring, Yannick and the Orchestra, joined by a brilliant cast, bring this compelling story to life on the Verizon Hall stage.
