PANIC: a groundbreaking new song cycle by acclaimed composer Andy Vores and poet Todd Boss.

Directed and choreographed by David Walsh, with projected images by Lynn Lukkas and dancers from University of Minnesota.

Performed by Florestan Recital Project: Aaron Engebreth, baritone & Alison d’Amato, pianist.

In collaboration with University of Minnesota’s School of Music, Florestan Recital Project presents a multi-disciplinary song cycle based on the novel Pan by Nobel-winning Norwegian author Knut Hamsun.

Set to a new libretto by Minneapolis poet Todd Boss, PANIC explores the themes which Hamsun vividly presents such as solitude, longing and madness. Vores’s music combines a vivid contemporary soundscape with a pillar of classical music tradition, the narrative solo song cycle.
