In Legend Of The Gypsy Bride the 15-member Sacred Clowns Performance Orchestra assumes all the roles, unfolding an exciting and electric evening of sensorial theatre. A modern day Beggar's Opera, the story follows an alcoholic writer who stumbles upon a band of quarrelsome Gypsies under a highway in Queens. Seeing the writer as their ticket to Hollywood riches, they weave a darkly comic tale for him about a depressed Gypsy dancer and her suitors. Filled with passion, intrigue, and the joyous celebration of a Gypsy wedding, the story turns very real for the writer as he becomes involved in the Gypsy Bride's search for meaning.
Gypsy melodies from Transylvania and Hungary are adapted by George Kalan, additional music by David Jenness, George Kalan, Aron Szekely and Raven Solano, Gypsy choreography by Andrea Kalan, with additional choreography by Chemda
