Frederick Glaysher performs The Parliament of Poets, and Tolstoy, Merlin, Black Elk, Du Fu, Dante, Job, Vyasa, Borges, other world poets.

Apollo, the Greek god of poetry, calls all the poets of the nations, ancient and modern, East and West, to assemble on the moon to consult on the meaning of modern life, seeking our common humanity, with Don Quixote as Master of Ceremonies. The 90-minute solo production includes musical interludes, literary, cosmic projections, and humanity coming together in peace and global community.

Glaysher has performed more than sixty times around the USA, Canada, and Scotland, making now his NYC debut. The show revives the storytelling role of the Ancient Greek rhapsodes, blended with the dramatic theatre readings of Charles Dickens and Edgar Allan Poe.

“Certainly wowed the crowd with the performance and the words themselves.” —Hudson Valley Writers Guild

“Our world is desperately in need of this message of peace, love and humanity.” –Rev Eric Williams, St. Philip’s Episcopal Church

“A great epic poem of startling originality and universal significance, in every way partaking of the nature of world literature.” –Hans Ruprecht, Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada
