i don't want to be sanguine
cause out in a crowd
you can see what a monster i am
Based on the Catholic Mass because of Catholicism’s relevance to Ireland, Joyce, and literature, Ulysses Missa is a subversive ritual for all who want to pay reverence to one of the greatest literary achievements of the 20th Century. It highlights themes of nationalism, a trinitarian relationship between Joyce and his protagonists, sacrificial relationships, and the creative spirit. Nominated for Best Music Score in NY Theater Festival Summerfest.
