Theatre Kelowna Proudly Presents RAFT a rock opera
In 1816 four ships set sail from France en route to the African province of Senegal. The flagship was the frigate Medusa. On board, an unlikely mix of English soldiers, French sailors, civilian passengers, and their newly appointed governor. She never made port.
Due to the incompetence of her arrogant captain, the Medusa ran aground. Of the 400 complement, 151 souls were set adrift on a makeshift raft without food or water. Condemned, as it would turn out, to unthinkable depravity and suffering.
Two years after the shipwreck Theodore Gericault, an aspiring French painter, read the true account of this tragedy. Before long his fascination with this narrative turned to obsession.
Haunted by the horrors that befell those on the raft, Gericault was compelled to embark on his most challenging work: Le Radeau De La Meduse… The Raft of the Medusa.
Based on a true story as documented by Medusa’s surgeon Dr. Henry Savigny, Raft masterfully blends theatrical rock music to tell the tale of this harrowing event.
Tickets:$30 Adult,$25 Seniors/Students,$22.50 Members with promo code
