Award-winning poet and performer Denice Frohman joins the Aizuri Quartet for The Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross, Haydn's profound account of Christ's final utterances at Calvary. Commissioned in 1786 for the Good Friday services at a church in Cádiz, Spain and later adapted for string quartet, Haydn's work originally featured a priest interpreting the titular words attributed to Jesus. In this updated version, Frohman replaces those words with new poems—all written especially for The Met performance.
