The Red Bull Theater has announced plans for a workshop of Olivier Kemeid's adaptation of The Aeneid, featuring music by Tony Award-winning Spring Awakening composer Duncan Sheik, Feb. 11-12 in Manhattan.
The Aeneid received a staged reading under the wings of the Red Bull Theater in November. Academy Award winner Estelle Parsons and Tony Award winner Michael Cerveris were among the cast.
Judith G. Miller authored the translation of Virgil's classic tale of a search for a homeland, which has been transplanted "into the modern world of middle-eastern revolution."
Kay Matschullat, who staged Carson McCullers Talks About Love (also with music by Sheik) and several readings for Red Bull, will helm the workshops that take place Feb. 11 at 2 PM and 8 PM; and Feb. 12 at 3 PM at the Theater at St. Clement's.
The workshop cast will include Tony Award nominee Trazana Beverley, Maha Chehlaoui, Ramsey Faragallah, Bhavesh Patel and Heather Raffo.
Andromache Chalfant will provide designs for the workshop.
Tickets are available by visiting RedBullTheater or by calling (212) 352-3101. The Theater at St. Clement's is located at 423 West 46th Street in Manhattan.
