Captain America once said, "'Twas music that soothed the savage beast." Although he was talking about his short-lived nemesis Dr. Angry Parakeet, it's just as true for animals of the human persuasion. Soothe your savage insides with today's Groupon: for $20 you get one best-available, orchestra-box-center, mezzanine, or main floor ticket to the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir's performance of Bach's Mass in B Minor with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra at Hilbert Circle Theatre (up to a $57 value). Choose between two performances:
- Friday, April 15 at 8:00 p.m.
- Saturday, April 16 at 8:00 p.m.
As part of the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir's annual "Sacred Masterworks" performance series, this melding of vibrant voices and delicately vibrating strings will pay tribute to one of J.S. Bach's greatest achievements. Mezzo-soprano Jennifer Lane, tenor Brian Stucki, and bass-baritone Derrick Parker will combine throaty forces to ring out Bach's epic mass, which has been likened to other famous artists' opuses including Michelangelo's fresco at the Sistine Chapel and da Vinci's Mona Lisa. The symphony orchestra's mix of harmonious winds, quivering strings, and rhythmically tapped percussion instruments will serve as a sonorous backdrop to resonant vocals as they herald the iconic work to waiting audience eardrums in a 2-hour show with a 20-minute intermission.
Doors open an hour prior to performance time, allowing audience members to gaze hungrily upon the intricate moldings, elegant lighting, and mysterious masked phantoms of Hilbert Circle's multi-level lobby. Once comfortably seated, onlookers can continue visual feasts in an auditorium adorned with ornate, handcrafted artwork bursting forth from the booming stage.
