The production features a live score performed by female voices a cappella, and mostly without words, to a series of vignettes and film animation loosely based on the Pandora myth and celebrating curiosity.

Subsequent productions will showcase a variety of collaborative artistic teams as part of an ongoing series of multimedia concerts throughout Western MA and greater New England.
