"Seven Words was an ambitious and thoughtful project."—New York Times
Returning to the Met after a critically acclaimed premiere in 2013, Seven Words is a music-video work that enfolds Haydn's transformative Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross with a compelling and evocative video environment by Ofri Cnaani. For this performance, which takes place during Holy Week, Attacca Quartet performs the string arrangement of the piece, and collaborates with Cnaani on its staging and direction.
Seven Words was performed at the Met in March 2013 with the Salzburg Chamber Soloists and a video installation by Cnaani. Video of the 2013 performance here.
