Eric Whitacre's Paradise Lost:
Shadows and Wings

Saturday June 25 — Walt Disney Concert Hall

Come see Eric conduct the concert version of his groundbreaking musical "Paradise Lost: Shadows and Wings" in Los Angeles. 7 soloists; a DJ; a solo cello and a choir of angels all tell the story of one angel who wanted to fly. Presented by Distinguished Concerts International New York.

The story follows the last remaining tribe of angels, marooned in a post-apocalyptic Paradise as children and now grown into young adulthood. Within their fortress they have created a militant, martial society, always training for the next attack, always afraid. One angel, Exstasis, remains untouched by the brutal world in which she lives and dreams only of flying.
