From Asgard to Arizona: "The 7-Shot Symphony" comes to Rhodes

Posted By on Tue, Jan 24, 2012 at 12:54 PM

This sounds intriguing

The 7-Shot Symphony mixes seven classic myths from around the world (Norse, West African, Greek, and Mesopotamian cultures) and sets them against the backdrop of America's Old West. The characters Odin and Gilgamesh, for example, are the sheriff and mayor of the frontier land and Orpheus is a cowboy whose fiancee, Eurydice, is a mail-order bride from the "old country."

I heard nothing but good things about this show from a friend who saw it when it premiered in Minneapolis.

6:00 p.m. tomorrow. Wednesday, January 25. Hardie Auditorium, Rhodes College.
