Academy of Sacred MusicMan at the Crossroads.

The Academy of Sacred Drama's presentation unites an excerpt of Antonio Gianettini's monumental oratorio with a routine by classically-trained mime Tony Lopresti in the American premiere of this work. A new edition and English translation has been created for this performance.

The Academy of Sacred Drama is a society for the classical arts that is exploring the stories, ritual, and music of sacred drama. Oratorio performances and salon concerts feature the music and libretti of works rarely or never heard in modern times accompanied by lectures and receptions.
