The Odyssey in Original Song: A Folk Opera Performance by Joe Goodkin

November 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC-4

The Odyssey is a 35 minute folk opera retelling Odysseus’ famous exploits in 24 original songs by Chicago-based singer/songwriter/Classics Degree holder Joe Goodkin. Joe has performed his Odyssey almost 350 times in 44 US States and in Europe (Greece, Italy, the Netherlands). The performance represents in a contemporary musical mode both the abridged plot and circumstances of the original oral composition of the Odyssey by the bardic tradition. A discussion follows the performance and more information is available at http://www.joesodyssey.com and http://www.joegoodkin.com.
