Café Antarsia Ensemble presents a work-in-progress excerpt of THREE GRACES an Ottoman Greek tavern opera
Written by Ruth Margraff
Directed by Kate Hendrickson
Composed by Nikos Brisco
THREE GRACES blurs the boundaries between speaking and singing, concert and play. Two blood brothers – Turk and Greek – wrestle the epic darkness of their fates at the end of the Ottoman Empire. This panoramic Iliad for modern Greece is inspired by the Nikos Kazantzakis’ novel Freedom or Death, as well as the raw lyric passion of Greek blues and Cretan rebel songs. From the collaborative team that created Trap Door Theatre's performance-event ANGER/FLY, this piece paints failed rebellion as the nectar of the gods – in a timeless tavern.
