Star Wars Music Minute


May 15, 2021

Uh oh, is that a "Dies Irae"? In minutes 71-75 of The Last Jedi, Luke makes an incipient Force connection, Rey faces her infinite reflection, and Kylo Ren definitely does not put a cowl on. Joining me today is my favorite playwright-professor, Takeo Rivera, here to suffuse my musical observations with his literary insights! We talk magical realism, postmodernism, Brecht, musical recalls, and much more.
