We’re sorry to inform you that performances of Mending Wall at Bryn Mawr College (March 21-22) and Roulette (March 23) have been postponed until next season in an effort reduce the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). To refund or exchange tickets, please contact BMC or Roulette directly.
Mending Wall has been a labor of love for our entire creative team over the past three years of its development. But we and our co-presenters want to be sure it is premiered when the time is right, without jeopardizing the health of our artists, audiences, and production staff. Please watch this space for new dates, or sign up for PRISM Quartet’s mailing list.
At its core, Mending Wall is about embracing the stranger—about restoring mystery, generosity, and empathy to our encounters with one another. Through our common currency of music, poetry, and theater, it celebrates how we are all enriched by recognizing a shared vulnerability, humanity, and responsibility to each other.
These themes resonate now in ways we never imagined.
We thank you for your support, friendship, and patience as we navigate this evolving situation together. We wish you safety and health.
Matt, Zach, Tim, Taimur
and the entire PRISM Quartet team
Mending Wall is a fully staged concert exploring the meaning of walls in our world by giving musical form to questions about identity, community, division, and freedom. Soprano Tony Arnold and pianist Arturo O’Farrill join the PRISM Quartet in world premiere performances of works by four visionary composers—Martin Bresnick, George Lewis, Juri Seo, and O’Farrill—who take inspiration from poetry by Robert Frost, Keorapetse Kgositsile, Waly Salomão, and Guillermo Gómez-Peña. Directed by Jorinde Keesmaat with lighting design by Aaron Copp.
