The New York Times has called Amy Beth Kirsten “wondrously eclectic.” The New Haven-based composer and librettist has a new work, “Quixote,” created with director Mark DeChiazza and the ensemble Howl. The performance theater piece is based on the classic novel by Cervantes. It was developed at Montclair State University through a new, long-term residency program as part of their Peak Performances series. Producer Susan Wallner stopped by for a rehearsal and spoke to collaborators Amy and Mark. The world premiere of “Quixote” is Thursday, March 23rd at Montclair State University’s Kasser Theater, continuing through March 26th. Tickets are only $20.
