Beowulf- A Thousand Years of Baggage
April 16 - May 5, 2013
OBERON becomes a 21st century mead hall in this passionate retelling of the Old English epic poem. Watch as Beowulf sings, struts and slashes his way through a thousand years of literary scholarship, revealing the raw and rowdy SongPlay within. Featuring original music that combines Weillian cabaret, 40’s jazz harmony, punk, electronica and Romantic Lieder composed by Dave Malloy from last season’s sold-out Three Pianos.
