We’re thrilled to announce the Chicago Premiere of our newest work, Olagón.

Olagón is a new, evening-length work, developed through collaborations with composer/fiddler Dan Trueman, vocalist Iarla Ó Lionáird of the contemporary Irish supergroup The Gloaming, and Pulitzer-Prize winning poet Paul Muldoon, along with stage direction by Mark DeChiazza.

Running time is 107 minutes with one 15 minute intermission.

The audience is invited to join the artists for a celebratory reception in the lobby immediately following the show.  Beer provided by Lagunitas and spirits from CH Distillery.

Lead support for Olagón: A Cantata in Doublespeak is provided by the Poetry Foundation, with additional support from the University of RichmondIrish Arts Center, and the Elizabeth F. Cheney Foundation.

This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. To find out more about how National Endowment for the Arts grants impact individuals and communities, visit www.arts.gov.
