Big Mix Series | Paola Prestini’s new work combines elegant music with stunning visual elements to paint an allegory on time, youth, and the peculiar magic of ordinary life. Aging Magician intertwines puppetry, theatre, shadow play, and fascinating scenic designs with an on-stage youth chorus and live music from American Contemporary Music Ensemble, ACME, to bring to life this “potent, soulful” and “enigmatic” tale of one man’s journey to uncover his own legacy (The New York Times).
