Description More than three hours long, with a cast of 18 and a chamber orchestra of 11, Atlas tells the epic tale of a woman’s world travels and spiritual quest, using a musical idiom of greater complexity than any of Meredith Monk’s previous pieces. A breakthrough for this polyglot artist, Atlas was one of the most anticipated shows of BAM's 1992 spring season.
