Friday, May 5, 2017 - 7:30pm
Meany Theater

According to UW's School of Music, "Twentieth century maverick composer Harry Partch turned Sophocles’s Oedipus play into a visual and aural extravaganza, combining spoken word, instrumentation, theater, and dance into a multi-genre theatrical work. Composed in the early 1950s and rarely performed anywhere, these special presentations bring to the Meany mainstage the combination of Partch’s handmade instruments with the enduring power of the composer’s unique artistic vision."

Friday May 5 and Saturday May 6, 7:30 pm Tickets available here.
