As night falls across The Green-Wood Cemetery, visitors will step through the iconic Gothic Arches and into an unforgettable experience of ethereal sights and sounds. Guided by the flickering of thousands of candles, they will wander along the Cemetery's winding paths to discover chance encounters with musicians, moving images, performance artists, and storytellers who will present unique site-specific performances.
“Nightfall: A Moonlit Exploration” will take place on Friday, October 19 & Saturday, October 20, 2018 from 8:00 p.m. – Midnight. Set against the stunning backdrop of one New York City's most historic and storied landscapes, each enchanted evening, which will begin and end with a mainstage performance, will be expertly curated by Rooftop Films, Unison Media, Morbid Anatomy, and Bindlestiff Family Cirkus.
