Bitter Banquet A Euripidean Song Cycle
Bold. Hypnotic. Challenging. Combining compelling visuals and lush music, Bitter Banquet, an original staged song cycle composed and performed by Annie Lewandowski, weaves iconic moments from the ancient tragedies of Euripides. Although written millennia ago, these unflinching examinations of human suffering continue to resonate today, and the intense emotional lives of the poet’s characters are richly brought to life. This powerful evening of performance also features percussionist Sarah Hennies and the immersive animated projections of Benjy Brooke.
