Euripides's classic masterpiece receives a bilingual, rock-infused re-imagining in this first-ever co-production of the Cuban National Office of Scenic Arts, The University of Alabama and Company HavanaBama.

Written and directed by Seth Panitch (Hell: Paradise Found; Dammit, Shakespeare!), Alcestis Ascending spins a thrilling tale of fate, self-absorption, sacrifice, and the redemptive power of love, through text, movement, and music. This world premiere features a combination of Cuban actors and dancers from The Cuban National Council of Performing Arts alongside American actors and is performed in both English and Spanish. Performances begin on July 9th at the Clurman Theatre at Theatre Row (410 West 42nd Street, NYC) and run through July 21st.
