The Broad Stage presents Birds in the Moon, a new chamber opera by Mark Grey and Júlia Canosa i Serra. Birds in the Moon is a fantastical story with live music, soundscapes and video projections that conveys the urgency and hope that the Bird-Mother experiences as she protects her young daughter from menacing forces that threaten to derail their journey – one that embodies themes of freedom, migration and borders. This is a new, mobile chamber opera performed inside and on top of a specially designed shipping container.
Directed by Elkhanah Pulitzer; Video Design by Deborah O’Grady; Production Design by Chad Owens; Costume Design by Christine Crook; Lighting Design by David Finn;
