Birds in the Moon

Chamber Opera, Contemporary

The composer Mark Grey is a master…what he is up to has far-reaching implications for the direction that classical music will take this century.” – Los Angeles Times

Written by composer Mark Grey with a libretto by Júlia Canosa y Serra, the storyline for Birds in the Moon is loosely based on an eccentric theory by 17th-century scientist Charles Morton, who hypothesized that birds migrate to the moon. With a fantastical story that draws parallels to immigration, migrants, and human rights, Birds in the Moon is a traveling chamber opera staged in a mobile state of the art, self-contained, shipping container — a theatrical magic moving box. A work that can be staged in theaters, parking lots, college campuses, and even on the beach, the spring 2020 premiere will feature mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke.

Birds in the Moon is directed by Elkhanah Pulitzer and presented in partnership with Meyer Sound Laboratories Inc.
