Composer Elliot Goldenthal Honored by NYFA

Film composer and frequent Julie Taymor collaborator Elliot Goldenthal (Across the Universe, Heat) was recently inducted into the NYFA Hall of Fame with Michael Findlay, author and co-director of the Acquavella Gallery, filmmaker Mira Nair, and visual artist Fred Wilson.

Goldenthal (second from the left, NYFA Fellow in Music Composition, 1989), creates works for orchestra, theater, opera, and ballet as well as film. He is composing the original music for a production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream to be directed by Taymor for Theatre for a New Audience this fall.

In 2006, his original two-act opera Grendel, directed by Taymor, premiered at the Los Angeles Opera, and was a finalist for the 2006 Pulitzer Prize in music.
