Zankel Hall
New York City Opera celebrates the 90th birthday of American composer Dominick Argento with a concert featuring the New York City Opera Orchestra. The composer of fourteen operas and numerous song cycles, choral pieces, and orchestral works, Mr. Argento has written music for over six decades. The concert includes performances of two one-act operas: Miss Havisham's Wedding Night, adapted from his 1977 opera Miss Havisham's Fire, commissioned by New York City Opera; and A Water Bird Talk, adapted from Chekhov's play On the Harmfulness of Tobacco and John James Audubon's Birds of America.
