REV. 23 is an audacious, irreverent, and comedically dark new work that finds the final events of the Book of Revelation in full collision with Greek Mythology, timely political satire, and our own collective human folly.
With a trailblazing score by Julian Wachner, experience the opera’s New York premiere in a new production by director James Darrah of a piece that the New England Theatre Geek lauded as “bursting with innuendo and cheeky wit... a magnificent beast of a score!”
