Musical Astronomy Shows by Prof. Kevin Krisciunas
Prof. Krisciunas has created two musical shows. These will both be posted here in streaming video within the next month. For now, we have the first two parts, the "All Star Revue" (get the pun?), and the libretto for the other: "Total Eclipse".
Better video quality coming soon!
Libretto and production photos for "Total Eclipse", an astronomy-oriented comic opera.
Prof. Krisciunas has also written several other songs about astronomy. Here are lyrics to 1 song about the constellations, and 7 other songs about supernovas, quasars, etc.. My favorite line from the constellations song (set to Gilbert & Sullivan's "Major General" song): "The constellations in the sky were not put there to bore us / There's Antlia, Andromeda, Aquarius, and Taurus".
