Miah Persson performs North American premiere of ‘Blank Out’



Blank Out, Michel Van der Aa’s “wonderfully fluent and effective piece of music theatre” (Guardian), makes its North American debut at the New York Park Armory this month, with Miah Persson staring as the central protagonist – the only performer to be singing live on stage.

Miah has toured this work since its creation at the Dutch National Opera in March 2016, with performances in Amsterdam, Opera di Rome, Helsinki and at the Lucerne Festival. The Guardian wrote of her premiere performance:

“the live performance is an astonishing tour de force for Persson, meticulous in its detail, and perfectly controlled.”
Andrew Clements, Guardian, 22 March 2016 

Blank Out opens at the New York Park Armory on Thursday 21 September, with further performances on 22, 24, 25 and 27 September. More information can be found on the New York Park Armory website.
