Olagón: A Cantata in Doublespeak

March 23, 2018

In composer/fiddler Dan Trueman’s words, “Olagón” is a “conflicted wail of both mourning and victory.” In this evening-length work, stories from post-recession Ireland are brought together to create a universal story that should fascinate and move all audiences.

21CM Takeaway: This is the newest project by Eighth Blackbird, along with collaborators Dan Trueman (composer/fiddler), vocalist Iarla Ó Lionáird and poet Paul Muldoon. And with stage direction by Mark DeChiazza, this promises to be yet another fascinating, multimedia production by Eighth Blackbird that will challenge our very notions of what art can do.
