Zorn, John & Foreman, Richard: Ontological-Hysteric Theater Volume 2 Astronome [DVD] (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    


"Richard Foreman is one of the great geniuses of modern theatre, and his dynamic staging of John Zorn's opera Astronome was one of his greatest works. Premiering in February of 2009 at his Ontological-Hysteric Theatre in the East Village, it continued its sold out run for months. Drawing upon Alchemical and Mystical imagery, the visual world Foreman created was sumptuous, provocative and mysterious. For this DVD, ten performances were captured on film from hundreds of angles and brilliantly edited by filmmaker Henry Hills, a longtime friend of both Zorn and Foreman. You can now experience this once in a lifetime presentation with a whole new intensity. Staged so as to hear the music "better and clearer" than ever, Astronome is a revolution in opera/music-theater."-Tzadik



NTSC all-region format; stereo; color; 16:9 aspect ratio; running time: 63 minutes
