This work in progress sets the opening pages of James Joyce's Finnegans Wake for an actor and seven instrumentalists. When excerpts were performed at the Huntington Library in Pasadena in June 2011, the James Joyce Quarterly wrote, "[This is] the first musical adaptation of a large unbroken portion of the book… At the end there was a universal ovation.”  Join us for this open workshop performance, which will include discussion with the audience.
