In a co-presentation with Lincoln Center Out of Doors, the 2014 summer festivities begin with the world premiere of American composer John Luther Adams’s Sila: The Breath of the World. In the Inuit tradition, sila is the spirit that animates all things—the wind, the weather, and all forces of nature.
