Performance Santa Fe
Birds in the Moon
From acclaimed opera producer and director Cath Brittan comes Birds in the Moon — a traveling chamber opera staged in a mobile, state-of-the-art, self-sufficient…shipping container? Yes! Featuring a musical score by Mark Grey, one of the most unique aspects of this chamber opera is the set itself. Premiering in September 2020 at The Broad Stage in Santa Monica, the sides and top of the container open up as the story unfolds, exposing the lights, sound, set, live video and props, all powered by solar batteries — a real-life music box! Accompanied by San Francisco’s Friction Quartet, the libretto is loosely based on 17th century scientist Charles Morton’s eccentric theory that birds migrate to the moon.
Milner Plaza opens at 6 PM for food trucks, live music, and more!
Tickets go on sale Wednesday, June 3rd at 10 AM.
