A Marvelous Order is a multimedia opera about the battle between Robert Moses and Jane Jacobs over the fate of New York City. A selection of scenes will be presented here in a site-specific adaptation for the Fulton Center transit and retail hub, where Frankel’s striking imagery and beautifully wrought animation will be specially reformatted for the LED screens that wrap around its circumference while live singers and instrumentalists perform throughout the terminal. Singers include Dashon Burton (as Robert Moses), Eliza Bagg, Tomás Cruz, Lucy Dhegrae and Christopher Herbert. Live instrumentation by NOW Ensemble. Conducted by David Bloom.

A Marvelous Order is presented in partnership with Times Square Arts and Times Square Advertising Coalition’s Midnight Moment, where the electronic billboards in Times Square will display Frankel’s animations during the month of May 2017.
