From January through May, MasterVoices will be rolling out a virtual premiere of award-winning composer Adam Guettel’s 1998 theatrical song cycle, Myths and Hymns (formerly Saturn Returns). This online staging, conceived by Tony Award-winning Artistic Director, Ted Sperling, will feature the entire MasterVoices Chorus along with Tony and Grammy Award-winning theater and opera stars and more. A kaleidoscopic collection of musical genres, Myths and Hymns explores the nature of faith and longing in a secular world, with 23 short musical films illuminating the search for answers through Flight, Work, Love, and Faith.
