About the Event

As the concluding event of Kennedy Center’s 50th Anniversary celebration, Leonard Bernstein’s MASS returns 51 years after its world premiere at the Center’s 1971 opening gala. Directed by Alison Moritz , this monumental work returns to the Concert Hall in a dynamic staging and features the National Symphony Orchestra  conducted by James Gaffigan  , 2020 Marian Anderson Award winner Will Liverman  as the Celebrant, and choreography by Kennedy Center Artistic Advisor for Dance Education Hope Boykin. Originally commissioned by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis for the opening of the Kennedy Center  in 1971, MASS served, according to Bernstein in a program note, as a “reaffirmation of faith.” Kennedy Center Concert Hall Thursday Sept. 15 7pm Saturday Sept. 17 8pm Sunday Sept. 18 3pm Get tickets
