Autumn Leaf Performance
The opera explores Virgil's captivation by the song of a young boy during his journey to Rome with the completed "Aeneid."
The structure of "The Death of Virgil" is certainly new for Theatre Centre audiences. The piece has a fragmented narrative, Arabic chanting, display cases, photography, musical and environmental soundscapes, and twenty blue-skinned dancers who create a breathing sea. The audience members will sit on the benches of Virgil's ship, an element intended to make them part of the play instead of mere spectators.
