★★★★★ “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.
