This popular event is back in 2018 for two nights! Enjoy a Victorian extravaganza put on by our good friends at Bindlestiff Family Cirkus. Begin the evening with a picnic (bring your own) around beautiful Crescent Water pond. Then prepare to be dazzled by nineteenth-century showmanship: fire eaters, musicians, contortionists, performers on floats, and much more – all under the starry summer skies. The evening celebrates Green-Wood permanent resident William Niblo, whose Niblo’s Garden was once one of New York City’s largest and most elaborate theaters (at Prince and Broadway in SoHo) replete with sparkling lanterns, fountains, and an open-air restaurant and bar that featured the top musicians, dancers, and entertainers of the time.
Texas native Lacy Rose is a classically trained vocalist, composer and poet. While living in Austin she sang regularly with the Texas Early Music Project and Austin Baroque Orchestra in addition to hosting numerous parlor concerts at the Sekrit Theater. Since moving to New York, she has collaborated regularly with choreographer Coco Karol and composers Sxip Shirey, Alaina Ferris, and John K. Stone. She has opened for and performed with such eclectic artists as Cocorosie, Baby Dee, Dave Malloy, and Osso String Quartet. In August, she made her Mostly Mozart Festival debut in the Schubertiade Remix at Lincoln Center alongside members of the International Contemporary Ensemble. On New Year’s Eve, she performed with Amanda Palmer and Jason Webley for their Phantasmagoria at the Brooklyn Bazaar. As a composer of neoclassical art songs, Lacy regales her audience with tales of magic, myth, tragedy and love. Maria, her six-part song cycle, explores the inner life and personhood of Gustav Klimt's muses, Maria “Mizzi” Zimmermann and Maria “Ria” Munk. Rose composed the score for a theatrical adaptation of Dylan Thomas' screenplay, The Doctor and The Devils, and is currently adapting Clarice Lispector’s The Passion According to G.H. into an opera with director Dara Malina.
