Choreography is by Tatyana Kot. Costume Design is by Janet Mervin. Lightning Design is by Gilbert "Lucky" Pearto". Our dramaturge is Theodore Dage. The show photographer is Bryan Cash. This is an AEA approved showcase.

A racy look at the music, poetry, heretics and sexual deviance of the South of France circa 1325. A play with music, which asks questions about the origins of today's culture of love. In the Thirteenth and Fourteenth Centuries, one million Christians were killed in Occitania by Catholic armies during the "Albigensian Crusade". Join Manfred son of Manfredo, a singer who finds out the hard way why these things happened and how religious tolerance and freedom of love can survive.
