About Only An Octave Apart

Hot on the heels of a sensational run in New York last year, ‘the greatest cabaret artist of their generation’ (The New Yorker) and ‘the vocally brilliant and dramatically fearless countertenor’ (The New York Times) are bringing their acclaimed show to London. Only An Octave Apart revelsOnly an in everything strange and beautiful in the coexistence of contrasts - from Purcell’s 17th century aria “Dido’s Lament” to Dido’s early 2000s hit “White Flag”, from “Autumn Leaves” to “The Waters of March”. Co-created and directed by Zack Winokur, with music supervision by Thomas Bartlett, arrangements by Nico Muhly, musical direction by Daniel Schlosberg, and costume design by JW Anderson, Only an Octave Apart celebrates the historical and the hysterical, from countertenor to counterculture. Only an Octave Apart was originally commissioned and developed, in part, in residence with Live Arts Bard at the Fisher Center at Bard, with the support of Amanda Rubin.
