The Disappearing Man

Jahn Sood’s THE DISAPPEARING MAN is a new folk opera that takes place backstage at a small-time circus in 1936. While the magician and his lovely assistant fight to break free of the roles they’ve always played and start anew, the liontamer, ringmaster, acrobat and clown make a desperate attempt to keep the circus family together, all against the backdrop of the Great Depression and the spread of fascism abroad.

JAHN SOOD is the creator of new folk operas The Disappearing Man and In A Sea of Faces and lyricist-librettist for musicals With You Always, Vital Signs, and Ernesto. Jahn was a founding member of Ezra Furman & the Harpoons and toured nationally with the group. He also assisted composer Pat Irwin on the scores of AMC’s Feed the Beast, Showtime’s Nurse Jackie,HBO’s Bored to Death. Recently he completed the manuscript for a book about his family history surrounding the Partition of India in 1947. He is a graduate of NYU Tisch and Tufts University and lives in Brooklyn..
