On Sunday, October 23, 2016 at 9pm, Works & Process at the Guggenheim presents Commedia dell'arte and a moderated discussion with American composer and musical pioneer, John Zorn.
Zorn's Commedia dell'arte is a suite of five miniatures inspired by the dell'arte characters Harlequin, Colombina, Scaramouche, Pulcinella, and Pierrot.
Tickets: $40, $35 Guggenheim members and Friends of Works & Process. Box Office (212) 423-3575, (M-F, 1-5pm) or online at worksandprocess.org. Performances at the Peter B. Lewis Theater, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, 1071 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY.
Also in October, John Zorn will take part in the Composer Portraits series at the Miller Theatre at Columbia University, with five new works, all slated to receive their world premiere performances. A dream team of new music superstars comes together to give voice to Zorn's newest creations, affirming once more the depth and breadth of his musical palette, which draws on punk, jazz, klezmer, classical, and other genres-spanning continents and centuries.
