If you’re a fan of the rock opera genre and Aliester Crowley, you might enjoy the new release by Eleusyve Productions.

The Rite of Sol is the fourth in a series of rock operas based on Crowley’s Rites of Eleusis, his ode to the seven astrological planets of antiquity.

Eleusyve Productions is a theatre group out of Seattle, Washington that’s committed to presenting all seven plays from the series.

They want to make them modern and accessible, yet retain the magic inherent in the originals.

The release of the Rite of Sol follows releases of the Rites of Mercury, Venus, and the Moon.

You can see a clip from the Rites of Venus DVD below. I think Crowley would have enjoyed it.
