Caligula - 2004 - New York Tickets, News, Info & More

Based on the works of Suetonius

The story of Caligula begins in a Rome plagued by the paranoia of its current ruler, Tiberius. Innocent citizens are routinely put to death for even the slightest suspicion of treason, and this fate eventually befalls Tiberius' own nephew, Germanicus (Sebastian Arcelus) and his wife (the excellent Shorey Walker). Their son, Caligula, and their daughter, Drusilla, are taken in by Tiberius and raised as his own children, largely because Caligula is considered a threat to the empire. As adults (Euan Morton and Brooke Sunny Moriber), Caligula and Drusilla engage in an incestuous relationship, which further blossoms after Tiberius dies and Caligula ascends to the role of emperor. Forced to take a bride (public opinion scorns the siblings' relationship), Caligula becomes despondent about his title, and after Drusilla's death, he descends into madness, violence and debauchery. He tries to make his horse a senator. He even turns the imperial palace into a whorehouse.

Ancient Rome is the story we turn to, again and again, to understand ourselves. And social media platforms label Donald Trump as an 'orange-haired Caligula,' or a Nero fiddling as America burns. But would Edward Gibbon - who literally wrote the book on this topic (The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire) in the late 18th Century - agree?

On her new album CALIGULA, Lingua Ignota takes Kristin Hayter's vision to a new level of grandeur, purging her and vengeful audial vision going beyond anything preceding it and reaching a new unparalleled sonic plane. Eschewing and disavowing genre altogether, Hayter builds her own world. She fully embodies the moniker Lingua Ignota, from the German mystic Hildegard of Bingen, meaning “unknown language” — this music has no home, any precedent or comparison could only be uneasily given, and there is nothing else like it in our contemporary realm.
