The show is Saturday, May 3, 2008, 8pm and Sunday and May 4, 2008, 8pm Barnum Hall, Santa Monica.
The show is described as:
Actor John Malkovich and Musica Angelica Baroque Orchestra present “Seduction and Despair,” an original multi-media concert presentation directed by and starring the celebrated Academy Award-nominee.
This modern-day melodrama with Baroque music is an extraordinary collaboration between the ultra-contemporary actor and Musica Angelica, whose work is rooted in the 17th century.
Music by Baroque composers – among them Boccherini, Vivaldi, Handel, Haydn and Mozart — serves as the emotional background of the true story based on the life of Jack Unterweger, whose grisly killing streak in the early 1990s took place partly in Los Angeles. Unterweger, a convicted Austrian murderer and acclaimed imprisoned poet, author and journalist, was pardoned and released from jail at the urging of Austria’s literary elite, only to kill again.
