We at Eleusyve Productions are currently working on our 5th full length rock opera based upon the seven planetary theatrical rituals that comprise Aleister Crowley’s Rites of Eleusis. The Rite of Mars, our current project, will be staged September 5th, 6th, 11th, 12th and 13th in Seattle, WA,.

Or, you can pass word along to anyone you think might be interested. Signal boosts are very welcome!
Crowley’s Rites of Eleusis were intended to increase interest in the A:.A:. By his own admission, he missed the mark by not paying enough attention to theatricality in their presentation. We have done our best to add a dramatic spark through music and story, and to expose a new generation to this material. In our first four productions (Luna, Venus, Mercury, Sol) we performed to sold out performances before several hundred attendees, so, at the very least, we have succeeded in promulgating to a broader audience and getting better press 😉
