Elegies for Angels, Punks and Raging Queens

Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University ElegiesA musical song cycle inspired by the Names Project AIDS Memorial Quilt, Elegies for Angels, Punks and Raging Queens will be presented at Chapel Off Chapel for a limited season from 11 May 2016.

Through a series of heart-rending monologues, hear the struggles of various people who have battled with the disease. Each coming from very different walks of life, every character has their own unique story to share, but one tragic link in common. Interspersing these stories are the poignant and uplifting songs from the victims’ loved ones, reminding us that AIDS affects the lives of more than the individual sufferers.

With music by Janet Hood and lyrics by Bill Russell, Elegies for Angels, Punks and Raging Queens is directed by Penny Farrow with musical direction by Heidi Loveland, and features musical theatre students from the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University in a tribute to those who have been lost to the AIDS epidemic and those who have been left behind.
