The Mile-Long Opera, a citywide public engagement project, brought together 1,000 singers from across New York for free performances on the High Line, October 3—8, 2018.
Co-created by architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang, with words and lyrics by acclaimed poets Anne Carson and Claudia Rankine, The Mile-Long Opera: a biography of 7 o’clock is an ambitious, collective, free choral work that shares personal stories from hundreds of New Yorkers about life in a rapidly changing city.
