Brooklyn Public Library will present short excerpts of A Marvelous Order—a highly anticipated forthcoming opera about Robert Moses and Jane Jacobs—in concert, outdoors, in front of Central Library. The opera is composed by Judd Greenstein, with a libretto by former US Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith, and is co-conceived with visual artist Joshua Frankel. Animation created by Frankel for the opera will be projected onto the building’s dramatic facade, synchronized to the live musical performance.
