Late last Summer, Dr. Richard Kaczynski had the challenge and pleasure of warming up the audience of the Esoteric Book Conference [https://www.facebook.com/pages/Seattle-Esoteric-Book-Conference/162881827065969 ] for a performance of Aleister Crowley’s “The Rite of Mars” interpreted as a rock opera by Eleusyve Productions [https://www.facebook.com/eleusyve]. This was rock-and-roll theater, so he shot for something both informative and entertaining with his “Breaking Down the Temple Door: Aleister Crowley’s Reinvention of Ceremonial Magick through ‘The Rites of Eleusis.'” To celebrate the upcoming DVD release of this rock opera, Eleusyve Productions shared video of Richard’s talk.
