ENO presents John Cage’s Musicircus

English National Opera
London Coliseum
United Kingdom

Celebrating John Cage’s centennial year, and his innovation and philosophy, ENO is the first opera company to create, produce and present the composer’s ‘omnium gatherum’ piece. This exciting free event will take place as part of Music Nation, an official countdown event to the London Festival 2012.

In a promenade experience of spectacular and extraordinary performances throughout the London Coliseum, ENO's Musicircus will feature artists including Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones and composer Michael Finnissy alongside ENO Music Director Edward Gardner, the ENO Community Choir, ENO Opera Works singers, and an intriguing collective of professional and amateur talents.

ENO's Musicircus is curated by award winning Proms-commissioned composer Stephen Montague. Montague worked with Cage in Europe for fifteen years, touring with him and premiering several of Cage's works. Visual artist Alex Julyan is Montague's long-term collaborator whose prior projects have included work with Punchdrunk and The Wellcome Trust.
