Inspiration for this production comes from two unlikely sources: Primatologist Franz de Waal’s book “Our Inner Ape” provides insight into the most provocative aspects of human nature: power, sex, violence, kindness, and morality, by investigating the social behaviour of apes. For mood and tone, we draw upon “Mozart in Egypt”, a 1997 musical fusion of Mozart and contemporary Egyptian music. Just as the traditional instruments of the Orient transform classical Western melody, our production takes a familiar theme and attempts a more complex, less predictable, and more reflective variation

Power struggels, tenuous relationships, shifting attractions and generally raging hormones make this less of a Marriage of Figaro and more like Sex and the Almaviva’s Household, perhaps with a nod to Bergman’s “The Devil’s Eye” or “Smiles of a Summer Night”
