‘Voices Out of Stone’
Inspired by the Sefaris Poem “Mycenae”, which concerns the tragic fall of the family described in Euripides’ “Oresteia”. A dream of snow and reunion, a ritual of greeting and farewell, the dance is set to the music of Barbara Strozzi.
Many thanks to Paul Beier for the music:
Barbara Strozzi: Lagrime mie - performed by Emanuela Galli, soprano, with Galatea directed by Paul Beier.
