John Moran

Since being encouraged to move from Lincoln, Nebraska to New York City by Philip Glass six years ago, composer and performer John Moran has received theatrical productions of his operas Jack Benny!, The Hospital, The Haunted House, and The Trilogy of Cyclic Existence at La Mama, E.T.C.; The Manson Family at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts; and Mathew In the School of Life at The Kitchen. Each of Moran's operas have had an innovative impact on the music/theatre community and have received notoriety in the press, including two Bessies and an Obie award in 1994. The Manson Family has been recorded on Point Music/Philips Classics with a provocative cast that includes Iggy Pop and Terre Roche, among others. Moran is currently a Columbia recording artist and has recently recorded Mathew in the School of Life, featuring Allen Ginsberg. Mr. Moran's The Cabinet of Dr. Caligri made its world premiere at the American Repertory Theater in 1997.
