The Broad Stage debuts In “… (Iphigenia)” on February 18, 2022. In “… (Iphigenia),” two of the most visionary and daring musical voices of our time – composer Wayne Shorter, “generally acknowledged to be jazz’s greatest living composer” (The New York Times) and librettist and performer Esperanza Spalding, “well over a decade into one of the most fruitful and strikingly original careers” (Rolling Stone) have created a modern operatic re-imagining of a powerful ancient story.
The production is directed by Obie Award winner Lileana Blain-Cruz, and conducted by Clark Rundell, with scenic design by Frank Gehry — longtime friend and creative collaborator of Shorter and spalding’s. Costume design is by Montana Levi Blanco, lighting design by Jen Schriever and sound design by Mark Grey. Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw contributed vocal arrangements along with spalding and Phillip Golub. Additional text is provided by US Poet Laureate Joy Harjo, Safiya Sinclair, and Ganavya Doraiswamy.
“… (Iphigenia)” will be performed at The Broad Stage, February 18 and 19 at 7:30pm. Tickets starting at $45 are available at thebroadstage.org or by calling 310.434.3200, or visiting the box office at 1310 11th St. Santa Monica CA 90401, beginning two hours prior to performance.
