April 1

Tickets and info here

★★★★★ “A golden odyssey through Philip Glass’s music….. Every so often your eyes will fill with tears, for there is only so much that the human heart can hold within it. The Guardian, London 

Composer Philip Glass and performer-director Phelim McDermott (Improbable Theatre) have worked together on acclaimed opera productions in London, New York, and beyond. Tao of Glass is their most personal collaboration yet. Inspired by a dream, this NYC premiere marries ten meditations on life, death and Taoist wisdom with ten pieces of music from Glass, presented by McDermott with an ensemble of musicians and puppeteers. Part-concert, part-performance, Tao of Glass is a storytelling tapestry, soundtracked by Glass’s mesmerizing music and shot through with Improbable’s trademark theatricality.
