HELD: A Musical Fantasy
Time & Location
About the Event
In this collaboration with Arts for All and XTension Dance Company, a Madison original musical by Kelly Maxwell and Meghan Rose comes home after two productions in New York. This production will feature a display created by Arts for All artists, which will set the scene for the production. In a different world, three childhood friends are trapped in a cell by a mysterious captor, The Blood Wizard. Zig-zagging through time, we learn the deep, complex relationships of the three: Korin, a dreamer with the power to conjure images, reckons with her vital role in their universe. Mera, a descendant of fierce warriors, contends with her destiny. Bardo, a baker, strives for peace, even as the threat of war is upon them.
Complex feelings of friendship and love weave their way into the trio's relationship as they careen closer to finding the identity of their captor, and accepting their true feelings for one another. Luxurious music and sumptuous lyrics make HELD a heartrending, one-of-a-kind musical experience. Learn more at www.mtmadison.com.
