NAHASDZÁÁN

IN THE GLITTERING WORLD

a look back at the WORLD PREMIERE APRIL 2019

Nahasdzáán (The Mother Earth), the much-anticipated dance-oratorio by French composer Thierry Pécou and librettist Navajo poet Laura Tohe, premiered in April 2019 at Rouen Opera. The creative partnership between Pécou and Tohe is the result of an intensive, immersive cultural dialogue with indigenous elders that began in 2016 in Arizona.
