Stage and Film    
Bacchae (2006) A score for a production of Euripides' tragedy performed in ancient Greek by the Columbia University Classics department and directed by Elisabeth Sacks. The production was premiered on April 14, 2006 at the Minor Latham Playhouse, Barnard College in New York. With the exception of a single scene, the entire play was set to music, with some of the choral odes setting the text itself to the music. The whole score was pre-recorded and composed with electronic instruments and samples with the exception of the viola parts played by Nadia Sirota and various percussion and plucked instruments performed by me.
