Ethos teams up with The VORTEX to re-create its magnificent and inventive Puppet Opera, Atlantis, which made its world premiere at The VORTEX in 2016. Chad Salvata, Ethos Artistic Director, visions a mythic world of warring religious zealots who are obsessed with world domination and non-renewable energy. With a soaring original score, fantastic and expressive vocalist/puppeteers, this new production of Atlantis: A Puppet Opera is one of the most exceptional and anticipated theatrical works of the year.
In the fantastic world of Atlantis, Queen Solstra and Prince Helios utilize their mighty battleship Invinctus as they seek world domination. They harvest the Eye of the last Kracken to control its Red Energy, but their greed and thirst for revenge lead to the inevitable destruction of their civilization. This cautionary environmental tale with Chad Salvata’s dynamic score and magnificent production design offers a magical realm including seductive Mermaids, a monstrous Kracken, and the ever-present power of Ocean, Sun, and Moon.
The stellar ensemble features the powerhouse vocals and puppetry of Justin LaVergne, Michelle Haché, Jonathan Itchon, Anderson Dear, Melissa Vogt, Gabriel Maldonado, Eryn Gettys, Patricia Wappner, Jeremy Moran, Kristin DeGroot, Joseph Quintana, Laura Ray, Aisha Melham, Kera Blay, Diana Patricia Guizado, Jelena Stojilkovic Rhynes.
