Third Bird by Isaac Mizrahi and Nico Muhly

Works & Process returned to the Guggenheim to present Third Bird by Isaac Mizrahi and Nico Muhly. In this tale of modern times starring the Ostrich as our hero, we meet a flock of characters from a Cat to the Moon. Everyone was essential in this enigmatic, empathetic celebration of each other’s strengths.

Peter and the Wolf by Works & Process

Charming only begins to describe Peter & the Wolf by Works & Process at the Guggenheim. Originally commissioned by the Central Children’s Theatre in Moscow in 1936, tonight’s performance was curated and narrated by the inimitable stage luminary Isaac Mizrahi. Prokofiev’s musical masterpiece came to life through Mizrahi’s delightful repartée, a coterie of splendid musicians, superb dancers, and sublime costuming. The lighting, sound, and set design were fabulous.
