Mass is Leonard Bernstein's most ambitious theater work, inspired by the Tridentine Mass of the Roman Catholic Church. Despite its adaptation of the Latin text interspersed with songs, choreographic sequences, and symphonic interludes, Mass is ecumenical in nature and cannot be categorized. Perhaps the most accurate description of the piece is "pageant." With a large cast of performers, including dancers, singers, guest boy sopranos, rock and blues singers, actors, and an orchestra, Mass is a truly unique musical and theatrical experience.
