Verdigris Ensemble Presents

Dust Bowl

The choral ensemble returns with its celebrated commissioned multimedia work that tells a story of the 1930's that remains shockingly relevant.

Please note: $17.50 ticket price is for students with valid student ID. Standard general admission ticket price is $45.25.

Anthony J. Maglione’s acclaimed music triumphantly returns to Dallas, played to sold-out audiences during its world premiere in 2020. The commissioned work, which Dallas critics hailed as “breathtaking” and “unlike anything else in our city,” features first-hand accounts of survivors of the Dust Bowl with additional newspaper articles and diary entries. In collaboration with a bluegrass band, video projection, and choreographed movement, Verdigris Ensemble brings Dust Bowl back to Dallas and asks how this happened and whether we have learned from our mistakes.
