Telling Romeo’s story with music and dance

Guests: David Hunsaker, writer. Todd Hunt, composer. Genevieve Carson, choreographer.
Romeo, oh, Romeo. Wherefore art thou Romeo? Although it’s been more than a dozen years since the wolf’s death, he lives again in musical and dance performances, recapturing the magic of Romeo’s encounters with the people of Juneau.

Composer Todd Hunt says he listened to recordings of Romeo’s howls for inspiration to write his orchestral piece, “A Wolf Called Romeo,” a cantata and ballet.

Air date: Tuesday, February 15, 2022
