Fire Angels was written by Mark Grey in honor of the 10-year anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. Set to a text by the writer and theater artist Niloufar Talebi, this tale of love, connection and transcendence meshes ancient Eastern and modern traditions to relay a story about Mana (the Persian term for divine life force) and Ahsha — an Avestan (East Iranian) term that signifies truth and existence in Zoroastrian theology. The piece was premiered on March 29, 2011 at Zankel Hall by mezzo soprano Jessica Rivera and the Ensemble Meme, conducted by Donato Cabrera, followed by a performance at Hertz Hall on April 3, 2011.
