In news that will only really benefit New Yorkers, the Museum of Modern Art is commissioning Antony Hagarty to create a performance, titled Swanlights, to be staged at Radio City Music Hall on January 26th. Though Antony And The Johnsons latest album was also titled Swanlights, this performance will be “a meditation on light, nature, and femininity, will include songs from all four albums by Antony and the Johnsons,” as reported by the New York Times.

Swanlights will receive symphonic arrangements from s Nico Muhly, Rob Moose, and Maxim Moston and will be performed by a 60-piece orchestra. The original plan for the production called for it to be staged in the MoMA’s Marron Atrium, but one Hagarty’s plans began to come to light, it was realized that there would be no place for the audience with the size of the orchestra, “sculptures, lights, and lasers.” Tickets for the performance will go on sale on November 12th and we’ll keep you posted on any further developments.
