Join Third Angle (www.thirdangle.org) as it presents Orpheus Unsung. Grammy award winning composer Steven Mackey does not wield a lyre, but instead crafts the tale of Orpheus’ journey through the Underworld with rock guitar contortions, while Jason Treuting (So Percussion) wordlessly sets scenes and soliloquies with a wide ranges of percussive techniques. Guitar and percussion take the audience through an evocative musical encounter with life, love and loss; from Orpheus and Eurydice’s wedding, the death of Eurydice, and then to the deep dive down into the underworld.
"Mackey’s and Treuting’s fantastic musicianship and seamless teamwork effectively bring O to life, illustrate his dramatic story, and highlight a concept that is definitely something new for the world of new music." -- icareifyoulisten.com
