Early Music Guild: Benjamin Bagby’s Beowulf

Great Hall; enter on Eighth Avenue. $15-$40.

Music

While Beowulf has come down to us as literature, as a written poem, the epic’s pre-literate audience would have known it through the performance of a scop, a bardic storyteller, as Bagby presents himself in this remarkable interpretation.

“Mr. Bagby comes as close to holding hundreds of people in a spell as ever a man has… That is much too rare an experience in theater.”
-The New York Times
