Wallace & the Dragon

In 2007, J Roth joined forces with bassist Sir Anthony to form the musical combo “Theatron”. Starting with Sir Anthony’s song “Belly-Dance of the Komodo Dragon”, they began to put together a series of songs which would grow into a soundtrack for a script written by J Roth about Alfred Russell Wallace and his extraordinary life. That play, “Wallace & the Dragon” was performed as part of the Minnesota Fringe Festival that year, with Theatron (Roth on piano, Sir Anthony on bass) providing live accompaniment for the action on stage.
