Hypatia and the Heathens: A Musical Bacchanalia
About Hypatia and the Heathens
If the civilization around you were rapidly collapsing, what would you save?
“Hypatia and the Heathens: A Musical Bacchanalia,” is a new interactive party musical inspired by the festivals of the ancient world. Based on actual events, it tells the story of Hypatia, the last librarian of the Library of Alexandria during the apocalyptic end times of the brutal Roman Empire. Told through music and theater, this immersive, multi-sensory theatrical party harkens back to the raucous saturnalia festival of classical antiquity. One thing is for certain: it will be like no toga party you’ve been to before.
