Minnesota Fringe Festival 2020: "Nature Creature"

Location: Digital Hub (available anytime)

Length: 50 minutes

Title: Nature Creature

By: Ruth MacKenzie / Jacqueline Ultan / Elizabeth Alexander

Summary: A gorgeous concert recorded at Open Eye Theatre in 2016.

Highlights: Composer Elizabeth Alexander has set some beautiful writing about nature to music, and accompanies vocalist Ruth MacKenzie, along with Jacqueline Ultan on cello. The result is something special. Ruth is such a passionate and expressive singer, and along with the haunting cello, everything about this is just gorgeous. At times humorous, at times deeply moving, it's just a really lovely 50 minutes of music. (And it was fun to see the charming little stage at Open Eye again.)
