We were out of town this weekend to attend a family wedding, so we missed the premier of UA hydrology professor Hoshin Gupta's [right; photo by Maria Sans-Fuentes, courtesy UA] rock opera, "Like a Lotus Resting in Fire: The Great Dance." It was performed by dancers from Tucson's Zuzi! Dance Company, Friday through Sunday.
The UA news office says the "rock opera tells the tale of a young prince who finds himself while searching for the secret to eternal life. The show is based on a CD of the same name, available on Gupta's Web site. Tracks can also be downloaded from iTunes or Amazon."
