As their tribute to the musical genius of Leonard Bernstein, who would have celebrated his 100th birthday this year, the Orchestre de Paris takes on one of the most abundant scores in musical history: Bernstein’s MASS oscillates between playful experimentation and musical comedy, between brass band and gospel.
The transgressive work mixes jazz, rock and classical music, using electric guitars as well as 24 soloists, to create a whirlwind of grandeur. The Celebrant, a priest conducting a Mass who encounters doubters and wrestles with internal conflicts, is sung by the versatile baritone Jubilant Sykes. The Orchestre de Paris and its Chorus and Children’s Chorus as well as the Ensemble Aedes are led by renowned Bernstein specialist Wayne Marshall.
A co-production of CLC Productions, Orchestre de Paris, Radio France in association with ARTE France in cooperation with Unitel and with the support of the CNC.
