Student Rush: $15 Tickets For Eric Whitacre's Paradise Lost: Shadows and Wings

A groundbreaking work of music theater with book by Edward Esch, music by acclaimed composer Eric Whitacre and lyrics by director David Norona and Whitacre. Infused with the style of Japanese anime and manga, Paradise Lost is a powerful and visceral hybrid of musical theater, opera, electronica, film score and Asian drumming.

The story follows the last remaining tribe of angels, who were marooned as children in a post-apocalyptic Paradise and have now grown into young adulthood. Within their fortress they have created a militant, martial society, always training for the next attack, always afraid. One angel, Exstasis, remains untouched by the brutal world in which she lives and dreams only of flying.

Conducted by Whitacre, and starring Grammy-winning soprano Hila Plitmann, Paradise Lost also features a radically diverse chorus assembled by DCINY from all over the country.

You can get $15 Student Rush tickets one hour before show time at the Auditorium Box Office (located at 50 E. Congress Pkwy). Remember to bring your valid college ID; there's also a limit of two tickets per ID. Student Rush tickets and locations are subject to availability and cannot be reserved in advance.

The performance is Tuesday, March 8, 2011 at 2 p.m.
