Sheep Off Broadway

Move over Shaun the Sheep, there’s a new star or rather a flock of stars in town……Making sheep history is a flock of Dorset and Romanov sheep from a northeast farm in Pennsylvania. The sheep have the starring role in De Materie, an opera by Louis Andriessen, being performed at the Park Avenue Armory  in New York. They are part of a dream sequence in which a white blimp floats overhead as the sheep move around.

For more fascinating details, see the article Excellent Sheep in the March 25th New Yorker.
