The third in a series of cutting-edge, interdisciplinary events, Heirs of Tantalus refracts Greek myth and Roman history through the prism of the baroque, incorporating material from the Greek tragedies of Aeschylus and Euripides, biting commentary of the Roman historian Suetonius, and excerpts from operas and cantatas of Monteverdi, Scarlatti and Handel.
Intertwining mythic characters with notorious historical figures, two actors and two singers perform multiple roles in this site-specific event, staged at a repurposed bank originally designed to replicate a Roman villa.
