Denied Romantic Bliss, He Goes a-Roaming
REVIEW by Brian Seibert, New York Times, December 7, 2014
Referenced work:


“If a Romantic poet were moved to praise the virtues of Jessica Lang's "The Wanderer," he would have many to list. The production, which translates Schubert's song cycle "Die Schöne Müllerin" into dance, is a work of high craftsmanship. For its premiere at the Brooklyn Academy of Music's Fishman Space...the robust baritone Steven LaBrie and the pianist Tyson Deaton rendered the score with compelling artistry. Mimi Lien's striking set is a forest of white string hanging from the lighting grid yet designed to look as if it were streaming upward. With great ingenuity, Ms. Lang's fine dancers shape it into myriad forms as they tell the story...Ms. Lang's overall use of the Fishman Space is, like so much else about the production, thoughtful and adept.”
