Cygnus Performs & Records Beckett music

In 2012, Cygnus gave a two-week run of shows at the Classic Stage Company in Manhattan. Joy Zinoman directed 3 Beckett plays, and Cygnus performed music in response to the plays. At Sarah Lawrence on February 27, and at the University of Wisconsin on March 23, Cygnus will revisit the Beckett music, with two days to record following the concert in Madison.
