Overview

Ancient ideals and modern musings rub up against each other in Blue Wizard / Black Wizard, a philosophical musical fantasia. Two referees adjudicate the proceedings as the Black and Blue Wizards battle to save themselves and humanity from the Great Mediocrity. Warping the conventions of musical theatre and classical art song to intersect with the sensibilities of electronic music, Blue Wizard / Black Wizard is a pop culture smash-up of fantasy language and contemporary parlance. What unfolds is a ritualistic sporting event, the likes of which audiences have never seen.
