Set sail for a whale of a tale with young sailor Ishmael, first
mate Starbuck, and Captain Ahab as they voyage across the seven
seas in search of the legendary white whale Moby Dick! Herman
Melville's epic saga makes a splash at the Kennedy Center in
this inventive production from Germany's award-winning Theater
Triebwerk. Three gifted actors use their bodies, ever-switching
hats, and a variety of musical instruments to create excitement
and suspense. See how a double bass and cello personify
everything from the creaking of the oars, to the moaning of
the hull, to the elusive whale himself! Brimming over with music,
wit, and imagination, Moby Dick has been hailed by the
New York Times as "a luminous and engrossing" theatrical
Recommended for ages 11 and up.
