“The greatest cabaret artist of [their] generation” (The New Yorker) and “the vocally brilliant and dramatically fearless countertenor” (The New York Times) join forces to celebrate their differences. Whether invoking mythology or nature, romance or radical compassion, Justin Vivian Bond and Anthony Roth Costanzo carve new pathways between opera and politically subversive cabaret. Under the music direction of Thomas Bartlett and staging by Zack Winokur, these concerts are a preview of the soon-to-be-released studio album. JVB and ARC intermingle their distinct vocal gifts around legendary works like Purcell’s 17th century aria “Dido’s Lament” to Dido’s early 2000s radio hit “White Flag,” and “Autumn Leaves” to “Don’t Give Up.” Think historical to hysterical; countertenor to counterculture.

Runtime: 90 minutes, no intermission

JUSTIN VIVIAN BOND & ANTHONY ROTH COSTANZO ARE EXTRAORDINARY!
They are electrified, their nerves raw and frayed, dazed to be in communion again...

WORLDS COLLIDE; FIREWORKS ENSUE!
The production is flooded with color… The stage is dressed as if it’s a diva too, draping her in vivid satins and chiffons...
