architecture: billy bragg, beethoven and broad


We’re going to the US premiere of Billy Bragg’s libretto on August 29. Yes, he has rewritten the choral version of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. It’s happening at the new-ish Broad Stage in Santa Monica. The building looks very cool and is designed by Italian architect Renzo Zecchetto. Supposedly the acoustics are superb. I’m fascinated to hear Bragg and Beethoven. Such an unlikely pairing. It’s a benefit concert with proceeds going to Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice. There are still tickets available…
