Tzadik Records presents the debut recording of THE WAKE WORLD, a hallucinatory choral fantasy by Los Angeles-based composer David Hertzberg. The Wake World premiered to wide critical acclaim on Opera Philadelphia’s inaugural Festival O17 in an intimate, visceral, site-specific production by director R.B. Schlather at The Barnes Foundation. The work went on to win the Music Critics Association of North America’s Best New Opera award. Tzadik founder and executive producer John Zorn now presents the opera in high definition, recorded and mastered by Grammy Award-winning engineers Andreas Meyer and Scott Hull, for the general public.
