The School of Night
6476 Santa Monica Blvd Hollywood
Seldom in the annals of legend and song has a conqueror’s rise been so meteoric as that of the emperor Tamburlaine. Born a lowly shepherd he has risen to renown as dread bandit-warlord of the Central Plains of planet Qo’noS. By winning and enlisting the Imperial army dispatched to kill him, he has defeated and dethroned the emperor Mycetes. Now Emperor Tamburlaine pushes out from Qo’noS in a bloody spasm of conquest, world after world falling before the self-proclaimed Scourge of God. But across the Neutral Zone, the Romulan Empire watches warily. Fearful, they forge an alliance with a former foe ... the Federation. And so the stage is set for the ultimate battle, a clash to determine who rules the galaxy. Can the Romulans and Federation bury past hatreds? And if so, can they hope to stand against the raging martial tide of Tamburlaine? The School of Night is proud to present Christopher Marlowe’s medieval pageant of will, war and conquest re-imagined as epic sci-fi spectacle. Tragedy! Romance! Mighty verse! Great battles waged on land and in space! Honor and glory! Qapla’!
