Two great works featuring strings—Barber’s poignant Adagio and Bartók’s riveting exploration of the instruments’ possibilities (the potent third movement appeared on the soundtrack of the classic horror film, The Shining)—share a program with Kurt Weill’s satirical “sung ballet”, The Seven Deadly Sins, starring mezzo-soprano Wallis Giunta in a new, semi-staged production directed by Joel Ivany.
