“The world turns on its dark side…” As war loomed in Europe, Michael Tippett took a single, brutal instance of man’s inhumanity to man, and created a plea for a better world. Idealistic, impassioned, and deeply moving, Michael Tippett’s A Child of our Time is Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla’s personal choice of masterpiece to open our new season: a true classic, with world-class performers.
