Work Overview

La Noche Oscure (Dark Night) was written in the 16th century by the Carmelite friar San Juan de la Cruz (St. John of the Cross). On its surface, the poem reads like an intense, clandestine, meeting of lovers. Each lover secrets away from their respective homes to come together under the cover of darkness to express their yearning and adoration for one another. Beneath the poem's romantic veneer however, lies a mystical, metaphorical subtext about a soul's yearning for the divine.
This setting of Noche Oscure uses three languages: Spanish, French, and English, these three languages and the way they are handled in the piece helps to tell the story of the lovers.
