that stole fire from Mt. Olympus and gave it to mortals, as
he is spiked to a rock in the middle of nowhere. He laments his fate and
his prophetic mind as the chorus of Oceanus serenades him with the psychedelic
sounds of the 1960s. While contemplating just what that fire
is for us today, the Gods rock out this 2500 year old play. Live music,
dancing, music videos, and poetry create this Greek tragedy.
