Juggling Shows FREE Nov 2
Posted November 1, 2019
The Metropolitan Opera and the Brooklyn Museum will join forces for the first time ever to celebrate the Met premiere of Philip Glass’s opera Akhnaten. With a newly created performance piece featuring stars from the opera and student performers from New York, this event will offer a dynamic, contemporary celebration of the ancient pharaoh in a museum housing one of the world’s great collections of Egyptian art.
The performance will be part of the Brooklyn Museum’s "First Saturdays" series. For one night only, the museum’s famed Beaux Arts Court will come alive with music, juggling, and acrobatics designed and choreographed by the creative team behind Akhnaten. Performers will include star singers Anthony Roth Costanzo and Zachary James, the Brooklyn Youth Chorus, The New School's Mannes Orchestra, and the virtuoso Gandini Juggling troupe, led by Akhnaten choreographer and master juggler Sean Gandini.
The evening will feature two performances of the 20-minute show.
