New York, 1971. Narcissus, a rebellious yet charismatic outsider, hunts alone in the city at night. He’s come south from his father’s kingdom on the city’s outer coast. Echo, a young nymph and socialite, falls for Narcissus and they hook up. Her brother and the other nymphs fail in their attempt to separate her from Narcissus and one night the two commit an irrevocable crime. Echo’s brother tries with more urgency to separate the two, but is instead drawn into an adventure that ends with tragedy.
Echo & Narcissus will engage original music, live chamber performance, visual art, ballet, digital multimedia, opera, and lighting design. The ambition of the project’s scope is matched by the deftness of its team.
