More Seats Available For Anthony Roth Costanzo’s Sold-Out ‘Glass Handel’

By David Salazar

The New York Premiere of “Glass Handel” has added tickets to its first two performances at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine on Nov. 26 and 27.

The event, which sees the countertenor perform alongside Eric Jacobsen and The Knights in music by Handel and Philip Glass in an innovative setting, was sold out months in advance. However, the demand was never in doubt, and it is for that reason that more tickets were added, including standing room options.

There is also a waitlist for mobile seats, which are part of the experience.

The show had its world premiere at Opera Philadelphia’s O18 Festival this past September and scored a number of rave reviews. “Glass Handel” is co-produced with Opera Philadelphia and National Sawdust Projects.

“National Sawdust is delighted to work with Anthony Roth Costanzo and his incredible team for a third year,” said Courtenay Casey, the Executive Director of National Sawdust and National Sawdust projects. “As a founding curator at National Sawdust, Anthony continues to drive unparalleled music innovation that creates an exciting new territory for the operatic form. We are also delighted to expand the National Sawdust Projects initiative with Visionaire and Opera Philadelphia at St. John the Divine.”
