Coming to St. Louis for 2 days only… Steve Reich’s acclaimed multi-media opera,“The Cave”, refers to The Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron, where Abraham and other major religious figures are buried. It's a special holy place for Muslims, Jews and Christians. Alarm Will Sound performs this ground-breaking opera that uses five video screens with material produced by Beryl Korot. "The Cave" gives audiences the opportunity to reflect on ancestral connections as described by Israeli Jews, West Bank Muslims and their American counterparts. Five questions are posed to people of all faiths: “Who was Abraham? Sarah? Hagar? Ishmael? Isaac?
