The Book of Revelation ends at chapter 22. Or does it?

REV. 23 is a fantastical imagining of the hypothetical 23rd chapter of the Book of Revelation by librettist Cerise Lim Jacobs and composer Julian Wachner, set to premier in September in Boston. Join us for an exploration of the opera’s predominant theme of tension between light and dark. Our panelists—Buddhist, Humanist, and Muslim chaplains—will respond to arias from REV. 23 through the lens of their faith traditions to spark conversations on the diverse philosophical and theological approaches to fundamental questions of the human experience. Select arias from REV. 23 will be performed.
