Program Notes: 

In this poetic and visceral song cycle, Shakespeare’s darkly tragic King Lear is distilled to its musical essence. Movement, words and choral songs performed in Latin, Polish and English render the iconic story of a man who loses everything that defines him. In 12 compelling episodes that each conveys a crucial scene from the play, this musical exploration of the text elevates melody to become the embodiment of character, relationships and drama. Songs of Lear, created and performed by the multi-award-winning Polish theater company Song of the Goat Theatre, took top honors in the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
