2020 Prototype Festival: NOVUS NY performs the NYC premiere of REV.23

Lauded as an “an endlessly unfolding chain of highly controlled polystylism” (Boston Musical Intelligencer), Julian Wachner’s REV. 23 is an exploration of an “unpublished” new chapter of the Book of Revelation. With an audacious libretto by Cerise Lim Jacobs, this striking new production by director James Darrah takes us on a fantastical journey through the myths of our collective unconscious.

Produced by Trinity Church Wall Street 

REV. 23 is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature
