Philip Glass and “Book of Longing” at Scripps Performing Arts Center

Noted composer Philip Glass will give five exclusive performances of Book of Longing, from February 25 to March 1, 2009, at Garrison Theater, Scripps Performing Arts Center.

Book of Longing is a concert work composed for ensemble, singers, spoken word, and imagery and is based on the poetry and artwork of Leonard Cohen’s recently published book of the same name. Glass will perform on keyboard in these five performances, and the artwork of Cohen will be prominently incorporated into the set. These performances mark the concert’s Southern California premier and are the only Southern California performances of this work.
