In this surprising NationalSawdust+ program, Gandini will join Pulitzer Prize-winning composer / singer Caroline Shaw and multi-instrumentalist / instrument inventor Mark Stewart in a conversation moderated by NationalSawdust+ curator Elena Park. The evening will be punctuated by juggling excerpts performed by several members of the London-based company, in town for the Metropolitan Opera’s new production of Philip Glass’s Akhnaten. Countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo, who sings the title role of the Egyptian sun god, will make a special appearance with pianist David Moody.
