About this project

We at Eleusyve Productions are currently working on our 4th full length rock opera based upon the seven planetary theatrical rituals that comprise Aleister Crowley's Rites of Eleusis. The Rite of Sol, our current project, will be stage over several days in Seattle WA, with additional promotional performances else-where as our schedule and finances permit. 

The money we collect through Kickstarter will be used to cover the cost of theater rental, insurance, sets, props and costumes for the production.

These stage performances are recorded and edited for DVD and released to the public as part of our ongoing goal at Eleusyve Productions to present the Rites of Eleusis in a manner that will render them more fully accessible to a broad audience, using music, light, dance and drama to enhance the poetry and symmetry of the original works.

Watch scenes from The Rite of Mercury, The Rite of Venus and The Rite of Luna  on YouTube.

For more information about Eleusyve Productions please visit our website, or enjoy these reviews of our past productions of The Rite of Venus and The Rite of Mercury.

You can also help fund our projects by purchasing copies of previous sound tracks and DVDs from Eleysuve!
