Robert Een and the International Mystical All-Star Band: The Escape Artist

"Joyous... rarely is new music this much fun." The Village Voice

Co-presented with the World Festival of Sacred Music

The concert version of the Robert Een’s opera tells the tale of a desperado who goes on the run to flee his wicked past, only to find that there is no locale so remote that it cannot be found — nor heart so dark that it cannot be redeemed. Spanning the globe from the American Wild West to the mountains of Tibet, Een’s escapologist encounters a series of unlikely teachers who appear in the guises of laborers, lovers and thieves, and eventually lead him to one definitive, life-changing event. A Bessie and Obie Award-winning composer, singer and cellist, Een conducts the International Mystical All-Star Band in this special presentation. His music, known for extended vocal and cello techniques, has been performed throughout world, from Buddhist caves in India and to Lincoln Center in New York City.
