Don’t Look Back is a multidisciplinary evening conceived, curated, and performed by GRAMMY Award-winning countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo, in collaboration with Opera Omaha, the Morgan Library & Museum, and Harvard University. Featuring the music of Mozart, Gluck, and Handel, the performance breathes fresh life into the Morgan’s vast collection of original music manuscripts and first editions, and allows Costanzo to perform, quite literally, within these artifacts. Film director and photographer Pix Talarico gives audiences an unprecedented new vantage point to interact with these precious objects, colliding past with present. New York premiere.
Don’t Look Back is part of Costanzo’s MYTHS festival, a series of performances and events that explore the idea of myth in personal, societal, and historical contexts. MYTHS is presented in association with the Metropolitan Opera, where Costanzo will perform Orfeo ed Euridice beginning May 16, 2024. MYTHS is partially funded with support from the Mellon Foundation.
