An emo musicale
Book & Lyrics by George de Jesus III
Music by Jeff Hernandez
Among the Greek myths and legends, nothing comes close in popularity and mass appeal than the story of Hercules. The son of the Greek God Zeus and the beautiful mortal Alcmene, Hercules is a great figure of valor and strength. His bravery earned him a place among the gods. After he left the mortal world, he found a position on Mount Olympus, the gods' dwelling place.
Hercules 12 is a contemporary retelling of the story of Hercules, highlighting the 12 Labors or Tasks that Hercules must undergo to purify his soul after unwittingly killing his wife.
Using contemporary emo, R&B sounds and alternative rock rhythms, the musical combines current-sounding tunes with a stylized visual rendition of Greek theater traditions updated through multi-media technologies.
