Meany Hall – Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

Song of the North is a cinematic performance combining the manual art of shadow puppetry with projected animation to tell the courageous tale of Manijeh, a heroine from ancient Persia. Manijeh must use all her strengths and talents to rescue her beloved Bijan from a perilous predicament of her own making and help prevent a war.  This epic love story, adapted from the Book of Kings (Shahnameh), employs a cast of 500 handmade puppets and a talented ensemble of nine actors and puppeteers to create a spectacular multimedia experience.

The Persian soul and culture vibrate in this original and poetic show.
