DACAMERA Young Artists perform Olivier Messiaen’s iconic Quartet for the End of Time, which serves as the soundtrack for the installation in the Cistern, Time No Longer. The composition, created while Messiaen was imprisoned in a German war camp during World War II, confirms the composer’s enduring faith and is a testament to beauty prevailing over darkness. Sarah Rothenberg, DACAMERA’s artistic director, will lead a short discussion on the work preceding the performance.
