The Ninth Hour: The Beowulf Story (6 pm)
This performative rock-noir reimagining of the famous epic explores the intricacies of mankind's relationship with power and violence. Staged in the Fuentidueña Chapel at The Met Cloisters, it is a classic story of glory and ruin—as told through triumphant pop anthems, heart-wrenching lullabies, heroes, and monsters.
Written and performed by Kate Douglas and Shayfer James
