The Infernal Comedy: Confessions of a Serial Killer

Starring John Malkovich : : American Premiere : : 2 performances only!

Delusion Sneak Peak

A cross between chilling crime drama and Baroque opera with live orchestra on period instruments, The Infernal Comedy: Confessions of a Serial Killer is based on the life story of twice-imprisoned serial killer Jack Unterweger (played by Malkovich).

“It isn’t easy to kill someone every night on stage. And the more people you kill, the harder it gets. Especially when I kill them as terribly as I do in this show.” –John Malkovich

A cross between chilling crime drama and Baroque opera with live orchestra on period instruments, The Infernal Comedy: Confessions of a Serial Killer is based on the life story of twice-imprisoned serial killer Jack Unterweger (played by Malkovich). Mysteriously back from the grave for an autobiographical book tour, Unterweger oozes disconcerting charm, as he narrates his sordid and shocking history. Each chapter concludes with an aria from Gluck, Mozart, Haydn, Vivaldi and more, sung live by stunning sopranos—all too tempting prospects for Unterweger’s bloodlust.

“Hellishly funny” –The Globe and Mail, Toronto

The Andersen Project

In this frequently comic masterpiece by theatre visionary Robert Lepage, Yves Jacques (The Far Side of the Moon) stars as a Canadian rock-‘n-roll writer who is unexpectedly commissioned by the Opéra Garnier in Paris to write a libretto for a children's opera. Arriving in Paris, he discovers that his living quarters are on the last floor of a building that is also home to a peep show in the city's red light district. Freely inspired by the timeless fables written by Hans Christian Andersen (who as it turns out, didn't really like children), as well as anecdotes from the author's personal diaries.
