In Season VI Quintessence will continue to enhance and expand its Elemental Recitations, a series of rehearsed public readings of rarely performed classic plays and poems. Bringing together Quintessence ensemble members and Philadelphia’s best actors, Quintessence has selected a series of classic texts to present in concert with our main stage productions. Each reading will be followed by a talkback with the actors.
