Qyrq Qyz (Forty Girls) is a legendary, epic Central Asian tale in which a girl gathers a group of 40 young female warriors to vanquish invaders, securing her clans’ freedom. Uzbek filmmaker Saodat Ismailova’s adaptation transforms the epic into a multimedia work that places live performance by female reciters and instrumentalists against a backdrop of multiscreen video projection, With a musical score by the celebrated Tashkent-based composer Dmitri Yanov-Yanovsky, Qyrq Qyz is a true celebration of women’s musical traditions in the Muslim world.
Pre-show talk with musicologist Ted Levin in the Concert Hall Lobby at 3:00 pm.
