Pulitzer Prizewinning composer David Lang’s Whisper Opera, as its title suggests, is an opera that you need to lean in to hear. Extreme intimacy is its mode. “What if,” asks the composer, “a piece were so quiet and so intimate and so personal to the performers that you needed to be right next to them or you would hear almost nothing?”

The International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) returns for its fifth consecutive season at Mt. Tremper Arts with a performance of Lang’s Whisper Opera, featuring soprano Tony Arnold and directed and designed by Jim Findlay. Performances take place on Friday, August 7 at 8 p.m., Saturday, August 8 at 6 and 8 p.m. and Sunday, August 9 at 3 p.m. Tickets cost $20. Mt. Tremper Arts is located at 647 South Plank Road in Mount Tremper. For more information, call (845) 688-9893 or visit https://www.mttremperarts.org.
