The Long Story

Opera superstar Anthony Roth Costanzo will take a short break from the Metropolitan Opera and the New York Philharmonic to join us in the Catacombs. Performing the one-night-only world premiere of Aaron Siegel’s Watching Birds at the End of the World, he’ll be accompanied by leading percussionist Sae Hashimoto on vibraphone. 

Siegel’s intimate song cycle contemplates the deep feeling of grief that comes with a broken heart, and the powerful sense of rebirth when that lost love is regained again.

Price: $60. No member discount available.
