I'm in the middle of research and development for a 2009 production Adam Guettel's rarely produced MYTHS AND HYMNS. I know it's usually done as a concert, but we're producing a full staged version...dancers, singers, actors, acrobats...etc.
I'm having a hard time figuring out how to stage Pegasus. I was wondering if anyone had ideas or had seen interesting staging concepts for this song. THere are almost no reviews, no production photos, NOTHING, on the net.
I'm doing my best to not turn it into a Julie Taymor styled event. I mean sure, we could build a costume similar to her zebras in Lion King, or even go for a Equus style 'horse' but it all seems so 'done'. Ya know?
Any discussion you guys can provide would be greatly appreciated. This is why I miss the academic world...no opportunity to just 'talk' so anything you can throw at me would be appreciated.
