In a brilliant theatrical adaptation with haunting shadow projections, masked dance, and puppetry, Maine-based Figures of Speech Theatre brings contemporary composer David Lang's little match girl passion to the stage in collaboration with the Holy Cross Chamber Singers.

Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize in Music, Lang's exquisite score recasts the H.C. Andersen classic about the suffering and death of a child in the tradition of Bach's Passion music, elevating her sorrow to a higher plane.

Tickets: $15 general / $10 Holy Cross faculty & staff / $5 students
