About The Event
David Lang’s Pulitzer Prize-winning The Little Match Girl Passion, based on a Hans Christian Andersen story and modeled after Bach’s St. Matthew Passion, has become a beloved Met holiday tradition over the last decade. Now, the haunting piece returns in its starkest, most poignant form: a quartet of percussion-playing vocal soloists standing in front of The Met’s ornate Christmas tree. Join us for this wrenching contemplation of joy amid suffering, hope amid hopelessness, and beauty amid bleakness.
