Ted Hearne, composer, singer, and bandleader, wrote this modern day oratorio for seven musicans and four singers. 'The Source" tells the life and story of the US Army Private who leaked thousands of classified documents to WikiLeaks, Chelsea Manning. Mark Doten, the librettist for this interesting and thought provoking work, brings together Twitter feeds, cable news reports, court tesimonies, and declassified military videos to tel the story of Manning. Premiered at the BAM Next Wave Feistval as a multimedia piece, "The Source" recieved rave reviews from the New York Times, NPR, Opera News, and more. Hearne says this work includes "auto-tuned recitatives, neo-soul ballads, icy string trios and moments of cracked-out musical theater are peppered with (and sometimes structured around) samples that bridge sonic worlds." "[A] beautiful, sad, altogether crucial reflection of our time" (New York Times).
