Atlantis, a puppet opera
by Vortex Repertory Theatre
Jun. 30 (2018)
Ethos Artistic Director, Chad Salvata creates a mythic world of powerful warring religious zealots who are obsessed with world domination and non-renewable energy. In Atlantis, Queen Solstra and Prince Helios attempt world domination through a war with Lemuria and its powerful Air Ship. They must harvest the Red Eye of the last Kracken for the Red Energy, but their greed and thirst for revenge will lead to the inevitable destruction of civilization. A cautionary environmental tale with Chad Salvata’s dynamic original score offers a magical realm with fantastical puppets, magnificent production designs, seductive Mermaids, menacing Sharkmen, and majestic Oceans. While Atlantis is intended for adults and contains some puppet violence, older children may attend.
