The performance of Elegies is a song cycle, or a series of songs by a single composer that are poetically related to form a unified work, which also includes a series of actors who step forward to talk about the life story of individuals who have died of AIDS.
The piece is influenced by the initial unveiling of the Names Project Quilt, the hand-sewn memorial to people who have died from AIDS. The quilts, which survivors have stitched together from individual memorial "patches," are sewn together to form larger quilts.
This performance was the London premiere of the piece.
