In the Light by Thomas Lloyd - A thriving community in New England is the inspiration for a new choral-theater work from the composer of Bonhoeffer. The concert-length work explores the curious complexity of how an acclaimed choir based in a seemingly peaceful Benedictine community is the home of a coercive, mind-controlling group led by its Prioress-Conductor. Highly skilled musicians and well-educated people are caught in a web of intimidation and fear. Visiting artists and international composers are blind to the suffering that lies beneath a placid surface of high-liturgy and glorious choral singing. The work explores how we, as individuals, find ourselves entrapped by our own self-identities and the expectations of others.
