Women of Trachis by Sophokles/ Version by Ezra Pound and The Marrying Maiden by Jackson MacLow.

Poster by Iris Litzack

John Cage did the music to The Marrying Maiden and Nicola Cernovich provided music for Women of Trachis. The title, Marrying Maiden, refers to hexagram 54 of the yijing, “the maiden marries: setting forth to bring order – pitfall./ No harvest in either direction.” This, MacLow’s first play, was composed entirely of lines from the yijing, and was among his first major successes.
