Midnight, Pierrot and you…

Because we all need a little more sprechstimme in our lives! (No, really!)

Pierrot Lunaire
9pm at the Western Front, 303 E 8th Ave, Vancouver, BC, Canada, planet Earth…

Bar opens at 8:00 pm (mmm, tasty liquid refreshments)
Concert starts at 9:00 pm (madness and mayhem!)
All ages welcome

From the Music on Main website:

“Pierrot Lunaire brings to life the strange poetry of Albert Giraud. Surrounded by a cabaret-like musical ensemble, the character of Pierrot constantly transforms, from female to male, from rational to irrational, from sober to ecstatic.
100 years after its creation, Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire continues to challenge and confound, shock and delight.
Discover for yourself why it’s a cornerstone of 20th Century art that all art lovers want to know.”
