INANNA - THE OPERA PREMIERE'S EXCERPTS

Sat. Oct. 18, 1997

INANNA - THE OPERA began its performance life for the first time in front of an audience. The orchestra of three and INANNA'S star Michelle Griffin played a selection of eight songs for attendants of the Huntingdon College Fall Music Festival in Montgomery, Alabama.
Under a canopy of turning leaves, the group wrangled through soundtech problems (thanks Randy X!) in the first song, INANNA'S THEME, to push a heavy rendition of THE OMEN into the dusk. In spite of all the problems, the crew aided in providing support and everyone settled in for the rest of the set. NINSHUBUR'S WARNING, ERESHKIGAL and REGRETS were all a part of the evening's fare. INSATIABLE wrapped up the one hour set (originally 2hrs. scheduled!), and a speedy exit was made under cover of darkness....



HOUSE OF BLUES FILMS INANNA AND ARTIST

Sun., Nov. 7, 1997

House of Blues executives from the east and west coast were in attendance for a special presentation by local Alabama artist Calvin Livingston, a painter who portrays the characters of INANNA - THE OPERA. A morning mist had just risen on a cool November day. A courtyard of four story brick walls echoed the songs of INANNA'S Insatiable and Rebirth. On a stage smaller than most hotel bathrooms, Inanna and her three piece orchestra wove the opening theme from morning mists' silence to the Ascension of the Queen of Heaven's wails of glory.
Artist Calvin Livingston has worked to the strains of Inanna - The Opera for over nine months, using vivid imagery and mixing methods into visual explosions of ethereal/archetypal forms. His work may be seen at the House of Blues in New Orleans, Atlanta and the House of Blues online. He is hoping to appear at selected dates during the INANNA - THE OPERA TOUR 98. During the filming, Calvin also played percussion, and afterward hit an impromptu blues jam with Inanna and the orchestra, also captured by the House of Blues camera's eye.
We are hoping to have a video from the House of Blues people soon, to be made available to you through AKASHIC RECORDS & PUBLISHING.
