White Light Festival

The 2019 White Light Festival has been running for ten years ago now. When Lincoln Center initiated this prismatic exploration of the arts, we could not have anticipated the impact it would have on audiences. These challenging times give ever greater meaning and resonance to the festival.

For their anniversary year, they are exploring works that embody the human capacity for love and divine devotion, from Vivaldi’s Gloria and Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde to James MacMillan’s Stabat Mater and Wynton Marsalis’s Abyssinian Mass. As always this season reflects the festival’s commitment to global voices and intersections of cultures. Whether experiencing Japanese bunraku, the musical journey tracing the Eastern travels of St. Francis Xavier, otherworldly folk singing from Georgia, or intoxicating Manganiyar tunes of the Rajasthani desert, you will encounter varied expressions of the human condition.
