A few weeks ago, Act I of Cosmic Opera introduced an extraordinary new dance experience, combining the incredible talent of Axwell (from Swedish House Mafia), with the beauty and mystery of the opera, all set against the backdrop of the magnificent Hammerstein Ballroom. Act I was the Overture, and now Cosmic Opera presents the first taste of Act II: Imbroglio, which will bring intensity, conflict, and charged emotion.
Act I, which sold out in minutes unveiled the 35 foot tall chandelier with over 5,000 crystal beeds which hung above head to the sold out room of eccentric and eclectic party goers, not to mention the 40 actors and aparatic dancers roaming through the crowd. “As it would be for a true Italian opera, our first Act was an overture. It was the initial combination of opera, theater and EDM. In Act II we will continue to build the event series and go deeper to explore the possibilities of Cosmic Opera with Imbroglio,” said Justin Cohen, The Cosmic Opera founder.
Act II: Imbroglio represents the evolution of Act I, taking the phenomenon and expanding, transitioning, and unfolding it to new heights, new depths, and everything in between. As Newsweek’s Daily Beast said, “The show has become a full-blown laser spectacular to the point where one feels like they’re in the movie TRON. The Cosmic Opera is where the music is the story, the action and theatrics developed from the music brings it to life in ways you’ve never experienced before. “Manhattan Center’s Hammerstein Ballroom cannot wait to show off Cosmic Opera Imbroglio, and the second of our open-house shows since May 1997,” said Sarah-Jane Bennison, the director of sales and marketing at the Manhattan Center.
The mystery continues, the journey continues… what will happen this time around?
