Description

In this highly-anticipated reprisal with Whim W’Him, The Esoterics is excited to present 'Approaching ecstasy,' a concert-length "tryst ballet" based on the life and poetry of the Alexandrian poet Constantine Cavafy. Composed and conducted by Founding Director Eric Banks, this collaboration will be sung in alternating Greek and English by The Esoterics, accompanied by the Skyros String Quartet and harpist Melissa Achten, and choreographed by Whim W’Him’s founding director, Olivier Wevers.
