Hydrogen Jukebox

158 N. Broadway, Milwaukee, WI, 53202
It was during the 1988 presidential election when Philip Glass and Allen Ginsberg befriended each other at a New York bookshop. The two artists discussed how the candidates (George H.W. Bush and Michael Dukakis) ignored certain social topics and wrote a chamber opera depicting American life from the ’50s through the ’80s, Hydrogen Jukebox. Sex, war, drugs, philosophy and environmentalism, the foundations of the counter-culture movement, will be brought to song in a story that follows the lives of characters from the Beat era.
