John Zorn at 70:
Barbara Hannigan + John Zorn
As prolific as he is provocative, John Zorn returns to Miller Theatre, where he and the venue have enjoyed a several-decades-long collaboration. This fall, Miller Theatre celebrates the 70th birthday of this New York icon with three exceptional concerts that explore the many facets of Zorn’s oeuvre, featuring the incredible artists with whom he closely collaborates.
One of today’s leading sopranos, the extraordinary Barbara Hannigan teams up with a cast of new music superstars to perform five of John Zorn’s recent vocal works. This incredibly ambitious evening of song includes Star Catcher, a surrealistic fantasy that is both notated and improvised, which premiered last fall in Germany.
