Nevsky Prospekt @ The Stone 2/3/10

Wow! This was brilliant! I had goosebumps and felt tingly almost the entire time. I didn't know what to expect, and this was way better than anything I could imagine.

They showed text from the story on a projection on the wall. There was plenty of time to read each paragraph and feel how the composition corresponded. It was so elegantly done, from the page-turning to the slide moving to the color of the background light for the text. And, of course, the music, which was stellar. Each piece was completely different and excellent. The music had a very wide range.

I will have to say this is the most impressive music project I have seen to date.
