Greek myth and Roman history refracted through the prism of the baroque, The Heirs of Tantalus weaves material from the Greek tragedies of Aeschylus and Euripides, biting commentary of the Roman historian Suetonius, and music of Monteverdi, Scarlatti and Handel into a depraved brew of hubris, blood-lust, and vengence.

With music from the operas L'Incoronazione di Poppea and Agrippina, and the cantatas Io Son Nerone and Agrippina Condotta a Morire, three actors and two singers take on multiple roles in this site-specific performance, staged at a repurposed bank originally designed to replicate a Roman villa.

"A pleasingly mathematical elegance in a swift-moving performance, without overstatement or extraneity...Gould and Lemos blended exquisitely"

"gruesome yet amusing at the same time."

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
