WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Internationally acclaimed performer Maureen Fleming brings her contemporary unveiling of the myth of Persephone to the stage of the Ellen Stewart Theatre. With text by Tony Award-winner David Henry Hwang, music by Philip Glass performed live by pianist Bruce Brubaker, this beautiful, multimedia meditation on "miracles" juxtaposes Fleming's new and repertory works with three-dimensional video projections designed by longtime Fleming collaborator Christopher Odo. Fleming created, choreographed and performs the work, which is inspired in part by La MaMa founder Ellen Stewart.
