A Passion for the Planet

Sunday, April 25 at 7:30 pm

It’s Not Too Late is an interactive, multimedia experience that delivers a potent blend of science, activism, and art – a microcosm of the coalition converging to change course at this dramatic moment in planetary history. This event includes a screening of Geoffrey Hudson’s A Passion for the Planet, a stunning eco-oratorio with director’s-cut style annotations by Hudson and climate scientist Michael E. Mann, preceded by a panel discussion with leaders in climate activism including Rev. Margaret Bullitt-Jonas and Mann.

A Passion for the Planet

Geoffrey Hudson’s choral-orchestral work, A Passion for the Planet, is an hour-long oratorio on the subject of planetary crisis. Blending scientific prose, poetry, and sacred texts from many faiths, the libretto traces an arc from beauty and gratitude into darkness and out again into hope.

A Passion for the Planet is scored for a chorus of mixed voices, children’s chorus, soprano and baritone soloists, and instrumental ensemble. There are eleven movements; in the finale, performers and audience members join together to sing a simple chorale tune.
