The Vortex presents ethos' classic tale of magic, power, and transformation. Inspired by Joseph Conrad’s novella Heart of Darkness, Chad Salvata created the story, music, and aesthetics of this epic wherein we "journey with Princess Mala as she rides Xéphyra the Dragonfly into the wilds in search of Vyn, the renegade Sorceress. The Magic of the Pearls, the Mysteries of the Temples, and the Secrets of the Ages are revealed as Mala is transformed from the Green Princess into the Red Queen." The intense musical spectacle won a B. Iden Payne Award in 2007, and this new production directed by Bonnie Cullum features eight additional scenes and songs – and all new designs and choreography.
Through April 15. Thu.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 6pm. $15-37.
