Summary
Full evening Hallelujah performance at the Flynn Theatre in Burlington, Vermont, including "In Praise of Fertile Fields," "In Praise of Animals and Their People," and the premiere of "Hallelujah: In Praise of Constancy in the Midst of Change" which included local participants and reflected local themes. "Constancy" is represented by "Monday Night Card Girls," six area women who had been gathering weekly to play cards since the 1960s. They appear on stage throughout the performance accompanied by sound clips of their own voices in interviews. "Change" is reflected in the themes of refugee sanctuary and domestic partnership for same sex couples, including a segment where couples of varied ages and gender combinations perform to excerpts from the biblical "Song of Songs." Robert Een and his ensemble provide musical accompaniment.
