Density512’s Mad King weaves a tale of monarchy, madness, anachronism, and palace intrigue. Witness a head of state, King George III, train birds to sing and deteriorate into a disturbing state of insanity in Peter Maxwell Davies’s masterpiece of musical-monodrama Eight Songs for a Mad King. Discover the sweet counterpoint of Musica quince vocum attributed to the princess nun Leonore D’Este (1515-1575). Contemplate the connection with your darker self in Peter Maxwell Davies’s Tenabrae Super Gesualdo, an ode to the composer and Prince of Venosa who famously murdered his wife and her lover. Not for the faint of heart, Mad King is sure to be a thrill.

The Mystery of Edwin Drood 11.18.18

Posted by on Nov 20, 2018

The Mystery of Edwin Drood is a hilarious, interactive whodunit mystery musical that takes you to the small town of Chesterham, England. Here we meet a rowdy Victorian theatre troupe mounting a production of Charles Dickens’ unfinished novel of the same name. But, during the production, the charming Edwin Drood is mysteriously murdered, but by whom? Without an ending written, it will be left to the audience to decide which character is the murderer in this play-within-a-play.
