Ayre – a co-production with Pacific Opera Victoria

Miriam Khalil, who sings, intones, wails, coos and caresses the texts in Ayre, is a mesmerizing, gorgeous presence… – Robert Harris, The Globe and Mail

Osvaldo Golijov’s haunting and ecstatically beautiful song cycle Ayre is destined to become a classic of the 21stcentury.  With texts and musical material taken from an intermingling of Christian, Arabic, Hebrew, Sardinian and Sephardic influences, Ayre blurs the line between the sacred and profane.  “If a modern classical work could ever crack the Top 40, this is it” – Alex Ross, The New Yorker.
