REVEAL: Iphigenia by Wayne Shorter & esperanza spalding


June 14, 2021 • 6:00 pm - June 15, 2021 PDT

Two of the most visionary and daring musical voices of our time, Wayne Shorter, “generally acknowledged to be jazz’s greatest living composer” (The New York Times), and esperanza spalding, “well over a decade into one of the most fruitful and strikingly original careers” (Rolling Stone), have collaborated to bring a modern operatic re-imagining of Iphigenia to the stage. A must for all fans of opera, classical and jazz!

Each online screening of WS, a longer super nova will be followed by a separate, filmed conversation between spalding and Shorter, moderated by Greg Tate and Craig Street. This conversation will delve into the relationship between the two artists as they collaborate on building their new opera, Iphigenia.
