<i>BIRDS IN THE MOON:</i><br>
 A NEW CHAMBER OPERA







Special Engagement

From acclaimed opera producer Cath Brittan and director Elkhanah Pulitzer comes Birds in the Moon — a new traveling chamber opera staged in a mobile, state-of-the-art, self-sufficient…shipping container? Yes! Featuring a musical score and Libretto by Mark Grey, and Júlia Canosa i Serra, one of the most unique aspects of this chamber opera is the set itself. Premiering 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 6:00pm for local food trucks, live music and more!
