The Bakkhai
The Bakkhai is a collaborative, interdisciplinary workshop production of Euripides' classic tragedy, co-translated and co-produced by New Orleans artists Ned Moore and Elizabeth Gross. The performance combines original music by local composer Tucker Fuller, live musical performance, theater, and dance. It tells the story of the god Dionysos who returns to the city of his birth, followed by a band of his worshippers, to seek revenge on those who have denied his divinity.

Euripides' tragedy investigates the character of Dionysos--boundary breaker, cross-dresser, god of drunkenness, destruction, of losing-yourself to dance in a crowd--and how best to worship him. Although Euripides was raising questions particular to Athens at the end of the 5th century B.C.E., this work strikes a particular chord here in New Orleans. The Marigny Opera House itself is not only a venue for the production but part of the inspiration.
