Pacific Opera Victoria’s production of Osvaldo Golijov’s haunting and ecstatically beautiful song cycle Ayre is destined to become a classic of the 21stcentury. Featuring soprano Miriam Khalil, 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.
