Eleusyve Productions is releasing their performance of Aleister Crowley’s “The Rite of Mars” this month [visit their FB page here: https://www.facebook.com/eleusyve].
In the third Rite of Eleusis, the armies of Mars gather to make war. Mars rallies his troops and marches off to conquer. The troops are victorious but succeed at great cost. As they recover from battle, the forces of War confront things that cannot be countered by strength.

Each production by Eleusyve adapts Aleister Crowley’s poetry and stage direction into a modern rock opera format that explores the Rites first performed in Caxton Hall in 1910. This release is of the Rite of Mars as performed in Seattle, Washington in September 2014.
