'Chris Rael's Araby'
Best known for his sophisticated India-tinged rock, Rael has set fifteen stories from James Joyce's Dubliners to music in Araby, a multimedia "chamber musical" for nine-piece ensemble. Autobiographical interludes punctuate 15 story-songs sung from Joyce's characters' POV. Rael's videos of Dublin open windows onto the city's soul.
