the little match girl passion

David Lang’s Pulitzer Prize-winning oratorio

As part of our Performance with Purpose initiative, we present David Lang’s the little match girl passion in partnership with DC homelessness service organizations. Lang’s passion sets H.C. Andersen’s fable about an abused little girl who tries to sell matches on New Year’s Eve, is ignored by passersby, and freezes to death. Lang challenges himself, and all who would listen, to be better than the crowd who did nothing.
