This is the American premiere of the opera by Karlheinz Stockhausen in a production from the Wiener Taschenoper. A fabric of clarinets, trombones, violins, and percussion, marked by a trumpet concerto, directed by Carlus Padrissa. Michaels Reise um die Erde is the second act of his opera Donnerstag, part of his seven-opera cycle titled Licht. The musicians of Ensemble musikFabrik, provide the propulsive sonic background of this event.

In celebration of his sixtieth birthday, Lincoln Center honors John Zorn. The first night (7/18) consists of two lyrical works for a cappella female voices: the sensual and evocative Shir Ha-Shirim ("Song of Songs"), and Zorn's mystery play The Holy Visions. The second evening (7/20) turns the focus to Zorn's six powerful works for string quartet, featuring the JACK Quartet, the Alchemy Quartet, and Brooklyn Rider.

Venue Description: The world's leading performing arts center and home to the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the Film Society of Lincoln Center, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Juilliard School, Lincoln Center Theater, the Metropolitan Opera, New York City Ballet, New York City Opera, New York Philharmonic, the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, and the School of American Ballet.
