April 29, 1990 | Spoleto Festival USA
Hydrogen Jukebox
Composer:Philip Glass
Librettist:Allen Ginsberg
Synopsis
Drawing upon Ginsberg's poetry, this music/theatre piece is a portrait of Amercia that covers the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's, seen by the collaborators Glass, Ginsberg and Sirlin. Its content ranges from highly personal poems of Ginsberg to his reflection on social issues: the anti-war movement, the sexual revolution, drugs, eastern philosophy, environmental awareness. The six vocal parts represent six archetypal Amercian characters - a waitress, a policeman, a businessman, a cheerleader, a priest, a mechanic.
