Song of Rome, a work-in-progress presentation based on Virgil’s Aeneid with Denis O’Hare and Lisa Peterson

October 8 at 4:00 p.m.
Donald G. Drapkin Studio

Under the auspices of the McCarter LAB – McCarter Theatre’s incubator for new work – the same creative team that wrote An Illiad (produced at McCarter in 2010) share the beginnings of a new solo piece titled Song of Rome. Beginning with Virgil’s The Aeneid and continuing to the rise and fall of the Roman Empire, Song of Rome is inspired by Roman theatrical traditions and will feature a single female storyteller.

The McCarter commission is supported by Princeton University’s Council for the Humanities and the David A. Garner ’69 Magic Project and has benefited from a partnership with Princeton’s Department of Classics.
