“Laurie Anderson is a singer-songwriter of crushing poignancy.” – Rolling Stone

Unique to Carolina Performing Arts, this program blends a rare musical collaboration between two giants of the avant-garde of the past 50 years—Philip Glass and Laurie Anderson—with one of Glass’s most important song cycles, Monsters of Grace. Longtime friends, Glass and Anderson will share musical moments and poetry readings followed by a selection of Glass songs featuring lyrics by 13th-century Sufi poet Rumi, performed by The Philip Glass Ensemble and a cast of longtime Glass vocalists including Tara Hugo, Marie Mascari, Gregory Purnhagen and Peter Stewart.
