A world premiere by Tim Slover
February 16-26, 2017
Poet, composer, writer, herbologist, midwife, and Christian mystic, Abbess Hildegard would have been a revolutionary in any era—now as well as in the Twelfth Century when she lived. Her vigorous, otherworldly life raises profound questions: In a battle between spiritual conviction and institutional rules, which should win? What counts for more: theology or experience? And especially, who may we love?
A play with music featuring Jay Perry, Shane Rogers, Emilie Eileen Starr and Christy Summerhays.
Musically directed by David Evanoff, designed by Phillip R. Lowe (costumes, Jesse Portillo (lighting) and Daniel Whiting (set), directed by Jerry Rapier. Funded in part the Arch & Bruce Brown Foundation.
