Only an Octave Apart

St. Ann’s Warehouse Presents

Justin Vivian Bond and Anthony Roth Costanzo

in Only an Octave Apart

Directed by Zack Wintour, Musical direction by Thomas Bartlett

“The greatest cabaret artist of [their] generation” (The New Yorker) and “the vocally brilliant and dramatically fearless countertenor” (The New York Times) join forces to celebrate their differences. Whether invoking mythology or nature, romance or radical compassion, Justin Vivian Bond and Anthony Roth Costanzo carve new pathways between opera and politically subversive cabaret — two art forms that, as Bond puts it, “have been kept alive for generations by queens.” Under the music direction of Thomas Bartlett and staging by Zack Winokur, these concerts are a preview of a soon-to-be-released Decca Records US studio album. JVB and ARC intermingle their distinct vocal gifts around legendary works like Purcell’s 17th century aria “Dido’s Lament” to Dido’s early 2000s radio hit “White Flag,” and “Autumn Leaves” to “Don’t Give Up.” Think historical to hysterical; countertenor to counterculture.
