Gerald W. Lynch Theater

524 West 59th St. at John Jay College of Criminal Justice New York, NY 10019

Lauded as an “an endlessly unfolding chain of highly controlled polystylism” (Boston Musical Intelligencer), Julian Wachner’s REV. 23 is an exploration of an “unpublished” new chapter of the Book of Revelation. With an audacious libretto by Cerise Lim Jacobs, this new striking production by director James Darrah takes us on a fantastical journey through the myths of our collective unconscious.

CONCERT: NYFOS “Lyrics by Shakespeare”

Merkin Concert Hall

Merkin Concert Hall, 129 W 67th St, New York, NY 10036

NYFOS opens its 2019-2020 season by revisiting the very first program it ever presented, in 1988: Lyrics By Shakespeare. This highly popular program, which explores the Bard’s influence on music over the centuries, returned last August in a sold-out performance presented by Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival.
NYFOS brings back two singers who are not only refined vocalists, but also superb actors: mezzo-soprano Naomi Louisa O’Connell and bass Matt Boehler. Both are blessed with a theatrical imagination, and their chemistry with the great actress Kathleen Chalfant and pianist Steven Blier is magical.
This 75-minute evening illuminates Shakespeare’s classic poetry with musical settings by Berlioz, Dankworth, Kabalevsky, Poulenc, Sondheim, and others.

made the twisted Lady Macbeth loom large
in the intimate setting of the concert hall.
