Juilliard is presenting a very special opera called “A Pig Tale” this week at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Juilliard’s AXIOM Tells ‘A Pig Tale’ for NY PHIL BIENNIAL

May 29-June 1 Only. A rollicking, deliciously wicked opera about social expectations and aspirations, from brilliant creative duo Alan Gilbert and Doug Fitch (Giants Are Small), explores the imaginative life in excess of heroine pig, Gloria, framed by the singular musical dialect of HK Gruber. Gilbert conducts Juilliard’s AXIOM ensemble at The Metropolitan Museum, part of the inaugural NY PHIL BIENNIAL.  Gloria—A Pigtale, a co-presentation of the NY Philharmonic, Juilliard, and Met Museum Presents.
Tickets $60.
