Composer Paul Bowles and poet James Schuyler turn this Sunday journey into a quiet masterpiece—a tuneful, witty, and subtly moving work rarely performed since its 1954 premiere. It is paired with two world premieres: a suite of songs from Pulitzer Prize-winner William Bolcom’s latest opera Dinner at Eight, and a new song cycle by Gabriel Kahane, whose recent CD The Ambassadors was hailed by Rolling Stone as “one of the year’s very best albums.” Tickets are $15 for residents and $20 for non-Reston viewers.
