(New York Premiere)

“A multimedia experience that splashes political hot potatoes across the stage yet refuses to be cynical or polemical. It leaves the audience puzzled and delighted at the same time.” —Pittsburgh Post Gazette

The News is a multimedia reality opera that transforms current events, political rhetoric, and the media into operatic hyper-drama. Crafted from news broadcasts and set to music by the brilliant composer Jacob Ter Veldhuis (JacobTV), the opera receives its New York premiere with Fulcrum Point Ensemble, featuring vocalists Nora Fischer and Loire.

The News will also be performed on Friday, April 17 at 7:00 pm.

Tickets to this event include Museum admission.

Bring the Kids for $1.
