Chicago Premiere of Harris-commissioned Work

Trey McIntyre Project in collaboration with the Music Institute of Chicago will present the Harris Theater-commissioned Chicago premiere of The Vinegar Works, inspired by the world of illustrator and writer Edward Gorey, who was known for his intense fondness for ballet. Set to Dmitri Shostakovich’s Piano Trio in E Minor, the piece features live performances from the Music Institute’s prestigious Academy musicians. TMP will tour The Vinegar Works with a recording by these musicians, and the piece also includes puppets from renowned designer Michael Curry. Curry’s work has been featured by The Walt Disney Company, The Lion King on Broadway, Cirque du Soleil, and Shrek the Musical, among many others.

In addition to the The Vinegar Works, TMP also performs McIntyre’s exuberant and wildly popular Mercury Half-Life, danced to the music of Freddie Mercury and the band Queen.
