Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson joins American Contemporary Music Ensemble and the 2014 Grammy Award–winning vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth to perform Drone Mass, a contemporary oratorio which fuses the sounds of string quartet, electronics and vocals, and uses texts based on the Coptic Gospel of the Egyptians. This world premiere is realized in the Met's magnificent Temple of Dendur in The Sackler Wing, among dazzling artifacts and architecture of ancient Egypt.
