The Mile-Long Opera: a biography of 7 o'clock

For five consecutive nights in October (3–7), 1,000 singers from across New York City, including members of The Glass Menagerie, came together on the High Line for the first-ever performances of The Mile-Long Opera: a biography of 7 o’clock. Audience members were active participants in this ambitious, collective, free choral work. 

Audience members walked along the park, moving in and out of groups of singers, immersing themselves in hundreds of stories, inspired by the accounts of a wide range of New Yorkers, about life in our rapidly changing city. 

7 o'clock means something different for everyone. What does it mean to you?
