PASSION TRILOGY is a humanist, universal meditation on hope and conviction. In THOMAS MORE, the Lord High Chancellor of King Henry VIII commits to “hold his pen” despite the ultimate consequence. An unwavering believer surrenders to the unknown with an arrow through the heart in THE PASSION OF SAINT SEBASTIAN. In Fisher’s newest work, THREE MARYS, a trio of grieving women find hope through encounters with facets of Jesus of Nazareth: the Son, the Teacher, and the Beloved.
This work can be performed with intermission. Performers include: 6 Vocalists (Baritone, Tenor, Countertenor, Mezzo Soprano and 2 Sopranos), Guitar, Dumbek, and Indian harmonium, and Dancer.
PASSION TRILOGY was premiered at Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, in 2017.
