ARA'KUS heavy metal opera from Seattle

Ara'Kus
"Ara'Kus Productions combines fantasy based, atmospheric, story-driven theater with their signature style of symphonic, operatic heavy metal."
"Ara'Kus Productions is dedicated to creating atmospheric, story-driven theater that can't be found anywhere else. Using traditional operatic themes and weaving them together with symphonic heavy metal music they create stories that are not only seen and heard, but experienced.
Aeterno Elementum, their premier production, is a dark tale of a world riddled with corruption and cruelty, and of its inevitable, and violent, purge. Featuring a variety of performers, from fire-dancers to aerial acrobats, martial arts experts and fully armored knights engaged in authentic medieval combat, Aeterno Elementum is a stunning visual spectacle. Combine this with a soaring, operatic heavy metal symphony and you have a show that must not only be seen and heard, but felt, to be fully understood.
