A collaborative project by Assistant Professor of Music Roger Matthew Grant was listed in New York Times’ co-chief art critic Holland Cotter’s Top 10 list of Best in Art.

Grant served as the dramaturg and also performed in the installation of “The Magic Flute,” a revamped version of Mozart’s original at New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, staged by 80WSE Gallery and the Cheap Kollectiv of Berlin. “This was theater for mind and senses,” writes Cotter, describing it as “packed with magic.”

Part one of “The Magic Flute,” an opera in six steps, was in open rehearsals Dec. 1–5. Part two, a film of the piece by Michael Auder, will play June 8 – Aug. 13 at 80WSE Gallery.
