Zukerman Makes Her NYC Opera Debut in Adamo's "Lysistrata"
Created in 411 BC, Aristophanes's play Lysistrata is to this day one of the greatest--and funniest--political spoofs. The bawdy satire about marriage and other armed conflicts revolves around a group of wives who employ a most unusual weapon--a sex boycott--to end an age-old war between Athens and Sparta. Now City Opera's composer-in-residence Mark Adamo turns this classic comedy into a raucous musical battle of the sexes.

Adamo's most recent triumph at City Opera was his extraordinary opera Little Women. The Wall Street Journal hailed it as "a major miracle of success," while the New York Times declared, "it does everything an opera should do."
