For centuries, artists have attempted to capture universal human themes in a universal human language. As one of mankind’s most constant preoccupations, Death has become one of its most iconic figures. A frequent motif in Renaissance art, 'Death and the Maiden' is usually represented by a young woman being accosted by a skeleton, the embodiment of death. Like the specter itself, this motif has also shadowed playwrights, authors and musicians – most famously Franz Schubert, who composed his string quartet No. 14, Death and the Maiden, at the age of 27 after a long illness, when he realized his own death was imminent.ACB addresses the eternal in one of our most beautiful means of expression with the world premiere of a new ballet by Artistic Director Lincoln Jones to Schubert’s haunting score, his first to the music of the composer. Followed by an artist reception with live music.
