Prototype Festival: Blood Moon
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
In this taut, poetic, opera-theatre work, three characters reckon with the past on the night of a full moon: a nephew who returns to the mountain-top where he left his aunt to die forty years earlier, the ghost of the aunt he abandoned, and the moon that presides over this night of reckoning. Choreography, puppetry and a taiko-infused score collide in this story of joy, regret, and atonement. Inspired by a Noh play, Composed by Garrett Fisher (“A strong, unified and strikingly individual utterance of unambiguous beauty.” – The New York Times), libretto by Ellen McLaughlin, and directed by Rachel Dickstein.
Produced and commissioned by Beth Morrison Projects, co-presented by PROTOTYPE and BPAC in promotional partnership with Japan Society.
Venue: Baruch Performing Arts Center
One Bernard Baruch Way (25th Street btw. Lexington & Third Aves)
