DION: A Rock Opera is a retelling of one of the most enduring Greek classics, The Bacchae. It takes place in the City State of Thebes. Dion (originally Dionysus), the non-binary "Demi God", (half God half human) and champion of wine and revelry, has come to punish their mother's family who refuse to believe they are the offspring of Zuess. They seduce their own relatives into joining a "cult" of disenfranchised revellers who have all abandoned Thebes for the woods, and then Dion allows themself to be captured by their furious cousin, the ruler of Thebes, Pentheus. What they convince Pentheus to do is not something anyone would have thought was possible... 

 
Entirely sung, this version of The Bacchae is sassy, sexy, quick moving, sacred and profane. It's a meditation on all aspects of The Left and The Right that has never been more relevant.
