Are you a fan of television crime drama? Do you enjoy listening to baroque music? Then you won’t want to miss the premiere of this fully staged, multi-media crime drama of love and vengeance told through art songs by Henry Purcell. When a powerful politician kills Lucas’ lover in a tragic drunk-driving accident and is acquitted of all charges, Lucas (Cory O’Niell Walker) seeks to administer justice by his own hands.
Lyric tenor Cory O'Niell Walker, praised for "his incredible presence and singing voice", creates another thrilling one-man show. Lauded for the ability to "break your heart when he sings" and for "his honeyed voice [that] pours out in a golden stream", Walker is sure to delight with his masterful, cutting-edge interpretation of these 17th century art songs.
