This Chicago Premiere by Erik Satie is a lyric comedy consisting of nine short scenes with seven alternating musical compositions involving the Baron Medusa, his daughter Frisette, her young suitor Astolpho, the Baron's recalcitrant valet Polycarpe and a dancing mechanical monkey named Jonas. The Surrealist play juxtaposes music, text, and movement and is considered to be a precursor to Dadaism.   Ruse Of Medusa Runs Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 4 pm.
