“After working on the design of the High Line for over a decade and witnessing the rapid transformation of the surrounding area, I thought a lot about the life cycle of the city—its decay and rebirth—full of opportunities and contradictions." explained Elizabeth Diller.
“You walk up the High Line and you can see a bit of everything. I wanted the music to work the same way: 1,000 singers each have their own solo stories to sing... You might hear them all together, in a haze, as you walk by. Or you might lean in and hear each story.” - Composer David Lang on "Mile Long Opera" (shown with Music Director Donald Nally).
