Wise One

Join Salties old and new as we present a brand-new work, Wise One, to warm you up this holiday season. In collaboration with the ever-fabulous Minneapolis Music Company.

Wise One follows a young woman seeking welcome on the darkest night of the year, inspired by the Norwegian folk tale "The Seventh Father of the House." Her journey will introduce her to Nordic and Romanian folk characters and customs--nissertomte, fierce animals, and maybe even trolls! Impossible Salt's wild, inimitable style blends drama with beloved folk songs sung in their original language, as well as new music composed for the production by MMC artistic director, Mischa Santora.

Director: Emilia Seay Allen
Composer & Music Director: Mischa Santora
Assistant Music Director & Instrumentalist: Joshua Weinberg
Violinists: Karla Colahan & Mary Alice Hutton
Design: Ashley Burdash, Amber Lee Olivier, & Allison Osberg
Ensemble: Parker Genné, Sean Hansberry, Amber Lee Olivier, Allison Osberg, & Gregory Parks
