Alone

Gregory Orr Productions, 2004.  Directed by Gregory Orr, Starring Curzon Dobell, Ana Asensio.

Alone was inspired by the old East German national anthem. That song, written by Hollywood composer Hanns Eisler, features prominantly in the score, as does an unusual instrument called the Cristal Baschet, which is a sculpture of glass rods and steel plates played with wet hands. Thomas Bloch, consider the instrument’s preeminent virtuoso, performed his part in Paris.

Featured Cue: Pool Girl and DDR Waltz
