Swanlights, a “large-scale concert and performance event” showcasing the music of Antony & The Johnsons, will take place at Radio City Music Hall on January 26, 2012. (2012! Already!) The songs in Swanlights, which was commissioned by the Museum of Modern Art, are culled from Antony’s four albums; the compositions have been arranged by Nico Muhly, Rob Moose, and Maxim Moston, and the results will be performed by a 60-piece orchestra that night. A hint at how elaborate the show will be is also dropped in the press release: “It is produced in collaboration with light artist Chris Levine, lighting designer Paul Normandale, and set designer Carl Robertshaw.” Lights!
Tickets go on sale November 12 (that’s a Saturday) at 10 a.m.; prices range from $35 to $70. There’s also a VIP option, priced at $95, that offers better seats and a copy of the tie-in book.
