Gilgamesh: A Musical Epic
by Peter Petkovsek and Ian Wehrle

Power. Kingdoms. Lust. And the Will of one (anti-) hero who wants
to do everything he can to conquer the one enemy he cannot beat: Death.
Based on the epic from Mesopotamia, one of the oldest pieces of
literature known to us today, "Gilgamesh - A Musical Epic" is a story of
how Man went from Animal to God, told in the form of an epic rock opera
with a live band. We bring together the rocky deserts of the mythical Middle
East and the electrifying energy of Rock to challenge the gods themselves.
