This season’s program is set to Wagner’s Prelude to Tristan and Isolde, a piece of music that famously set new standards in the use of Harmonic Suspension. This compositional device has inspired the show’s carefully crafted sense of development and the tension created by WAITING for both short and long term resolutions. To complement this aspect of construction, the performers interact with equipment, props, space, and each other to illustrate the emotional burdens of WEIGHT that we may all carry for short or long periods of our lives. And lastly, the set and costumes work in concert to create an additional layer of design by drawing on the STEAMPUNK style to offer a sense of magic, romance, and timelessness. The 31 talented men and women of the cast hope that you enjoy Pride’s performances at Tri State Circuit, as well as WGI Indianapolis Regional, WGI Mid East Cincinnati regional, and the WGI 2013 World Championships.
