Vox Populi

City Opera’s VOX 2007 festival celebrates some of the most innovative American opera composers today. Here, New York’s picks from the two days’ worth of performances.

  1. 1. La Machine de l’Être

    The always-surprising John Zorn’s opera, based on Antonin Artaud’s drawings, is for just soprano and orchestraand it’s only ten minutes long.

  2. 2. Elmer Gantry

    Robert Aldridge adapts Sinclair Lewis’s novel about a womanizer who cons people into thinking he’s a preacher.

  3. 3. The Fisher King

    No Robin Williams or Jeff Bridges, but that didn’t stop Marc Lowenstein from creating an opera adaptation of Terry Gilliam’s beloved film.
