New York City Opera presents JOHN ZORN’S MASADA MARATHON

New York City Opera presents JOHN ZORN’S MASADA MARATHON

Written in a flash of creativity during three months at the end of 2004, the 316 compositions in John Zorn's Book of Angels contain some of his most lyrical and inspiring music. Performed by a wide variety of ensembles over the past seven years, the music has generated 17 CDs to date, with three more scheduled for release in 2011-2012. This special Marathon concert brings together 12 different groups of wildly divergent backgrounds (jazz, rock, classical, world music, jam band, a cappella singing and more) in one spectacular evening of music.

The concert will include two 90-minute sets with one intermission.
