At the Vancouver Playhouse

Early Music Vancouver presents Beowulf: the epic in performance featuring Benjamin Bagby

“Hwaet!” commands the storyteller. Listen! And tremble at this fearsome tale! A millennium or more has passed since the superhero Beowulf appeared in the annals of epic poetry, yet the legend of his bare-handed conquest of the terrifying Grendel endures. As one of the world’s leading practitioners of historically informed music and theater, Benjamin Bagby dramatizes the awe-inspiring poem in the original Anglo-Saxon, while simultaneously accompanying himself on medieval harp.

With English supertitles.
