We caught up with Charlie Christos, a singer-songwriter who performs in the on-stage band for Prometheus Bound. This brand-new incarnation of Aeschylus’s ancient tragedy recast as a rock show is currently playing at the American Repertory Theater’s Club Oberon in Cambridge. It was directed by Death and the Powers‘ Diane Paulus, with a fresh, lean and direct text by Steven Sater (Spring Awakening) and gut-shaking music composed by Serj Tankian (lead singer of System of a Down). Charlie went to Death and the Powers last Sunday. Here he is backstage at Oberon, talking about the experience.

Love Charlie Christos’ parting comment, “It’s not for the faint of heart, it’s bad-ass.” Awesome opera!
