New Worlds: The Cradle of Civilization
Bill Murray, Jan Vogler, & Friends perform New Worlds in Athens
The concert-documentary film, part of the Official Selection of the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, is of the final performance in Athens of Bill Murray and Jan Vogler’s performance New Worlds: The Cradle of Civilization. The film is directed by Andrew Muscato and filmed at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus overlooking the city of Athens.
On a glorious Greek evening, screen legend Bill Murray and world-renowned cellist Jan Vogler rock the Acropolis with a timeless mix of poetry and music. Captured on film by director Andrew Muscato, Murray and Vogler are joined by the dazzling Mira Wang (violin) and dynamic Vanessa Perez (piano). The international quartet enchants the Athenian audience from the 2,000 year-old stage of the Odeon of Herodes Atticus with musical reflections on love, hope and heartbreak. Spanning from Bach to Van Morrison, Whitman to West Side Story, the wildly entertaining, humorous and deeply touching program is infused with the one-of-a-kind charm of Bill Murray.
“A Show no one else could have done.”
– Chicago Tribune
“With a hearty helping of deadpan expressions and ebullient hand gestures, the moment was pure joy, both for the crowd and the performers onstage.”
