astronome: a night at the opera

John Zorn’s Moonchild Trio (Mike Patton/Trevor Dunn/Joey Baron) is due out with a fourth recorded installment (The Crucible) later in 2008/early 2009.  Their second installment, 2006’s Astronome, is getting a revised treatment for the stage.  From the Downtown Music Gallery‘s newsletter this week:

ASTRONOME: A NIGHT AT THE OPERA!

Director Richard Foreman and musician John Zorn team up for Astronome: A Night at the Opera opening next year [2009] at Ontological-Hysteric Theater.

WATCH VIDEO FEED of rehearsals and see how Foreman develops this production… EVERY WEDNESDAY from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Nov. 26, 2008-Jan. 21, 2009 live from the Ontological-Hysteric Theater in Manhattan! [No rehearsals Dec. 24, 2008]

hmm… No word in the above weblinks if the Patton/Dunn/Baron Moonchild Trio (pictured below) will be in the production.  I don’t know how it would work without them, but you never know.  I mean, it could probably only be non-rad if they got Renee Zellweger to play Mike Patton’s parts. :)  .

NYC trip in 2009 for me?  Unlikely.  But I can dream…
