Dave Malloy & Original Cast of Octet
Octet (Original Cast Recording) Digital MP3 Album
The original cast recording for Dave Malloy's musical Octet features a score for an a cappella chamber choir and an original libretto inspired by internet comment boards, scientific debates, religious texts, and Sufi poetry. Octet, which premiered at the Signature Theatre in 2019, explores addiction and nihilism within the messy context of twenty-first century technology. ""The most original and topical musical of the year,"" says the New York Times; ""the sublime a cappella chamber opera is a portrait in song of perhaps the greatest David and Goliath struggle of our time.""
