Bread & Puppet did Oedipus Rex with a local chorus and Michael  
Arnowitt on piano in the early 90's.
We did a production of Mozart's Requiem with chorus and orchestra a  
little earlier that same decade
Your can contact us at:

I was in both of these productions; don't know how much I remember,  
but I'll try.
