Ara’Kus Productions, the minds behind the heavy metal opera AETERNO ELEMENTUM, will be performing at the Pacific Science Center’s Laser Dome in downtown Seattle on February 19th. The show will be divided into two sets that will include music from both Aeterno Elementum and from a brand new, upcoming production. Each set, occurring at 7 and 9pm, will be comprised of different songs from both the new production and Aeterno Elementum, making each one unique for those who wish to experience both performances. Featuring the same dark and soaring musical style that are the hallmark Ara’Kus Productions, and with the addition of the laser choreography, this show will appeal to anyone with a love for both music and lasers.

“The addition of the laser visuals to our already theatrical performances adds a completely new and surreal element to the mix, and we’re really excited to be debuting some new compositions in this environment as well as revisiting old favorites.” says Jeremiah Johnson, founder of Ara’Kus Productions and composer of Aeterno Elementum. Alongside Jeremiah will be fellow ARA’KUS founder and lead guitarist Randy Haines as well as the rest of the Ara’Kus band and choir and many of the actors from the theatrical show.

These great talents will include:
Lauren ‘Razz’ Palumbi – Lead Violin
BJ Becker – The Priest
Richard Chartrand – The Imp
Carrole Johnson – The Demoness
Jeremy Veleber – Drums
Rachel Brunson – Keyboards
John Perlic – Cello
Vivian Lee – Lead Soprano
Ray Salamon – Bass
