From Our Friends: The Great Northern
February 4, 2023 @ 2:00 pm
Ben Frost: Cold Air Rises World Premiere
Sat, Feb 4, 2 and 4pm, Luminary Arts Center
Australia-born/Iceland-based artist Ben Frost presents a new choral performance and installation Cold Air Rises (the first section of forthcoming opera) commissioned by The Great Northern. This new work in development is a collaboration with acclaimed British nature writer Robert MacFarlane. Local ensemble MPLS (imPulse) and dancer Amanda Sachs will perform this first movement of what will eventually form Frost’s next opera, commissioned by The Great Northern at MN Opera’s Luminary Arts Center. Experience a sound experience like none other, a beautiful story of obsession and transformation.
The Great Northern celebrates cold, creative winters through programming that invigorates mind and body. In an era of changing climate that threatens our signature season, the festival seeks to create community, inspire action, and share the resilient spirit of the North with the world.
