WILLIAM KENTRIDGE IN CONVERSATION

I’m interested in awkward operas; operas in which there are unsolved riddles… in which there’s a space—both musically and thematically—for a world to evolve and be imagined around the story. William Kentridge

In conjunction with the upcoming Metropolitan Opera’s new production of Alban Berg’s WOZZECK—featuring production design by Kentridge—the artist will be at the Morgan Library and Museum for a talk about his work.
