Musicircus - 2012

“For two joyously barmy hours John Cage’s Musicircus filled the corridors and foyers of one of London’s grandest theatres, The Coliseum, with a merry mayhem of music. All credit to the directors, Stephen Montague and Alex Julyan, for bringing Cage’s maverick vision so gloriously to life in his centenary year.”
The Times 06.03.12

An English National Opera commission with composer Stephen Montague. The first celebration of 2012 to mark John Cage's centenial year. This event of spectacular, simultaneous performances unfolded over on 4 floors of the Coliseum. 145 extraordinary performers including John Paul Jones (bass guitar), Edward Gardner (principle conductor ENO) and Watson vs King (chess Grand Masters) created a 'happening' on an epic scale.
