ABOUT

Blood Moon is taut, poetic, opera-theatre for three characters who encounter each other 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 as it did the night of her death. Inspired by the Noh play Obasute, the piece is a meditation on the end of life, the nature of joy, regret, and whether atonement is possible.

 

 

SUPPORT 

Co-presented with Baruch Performing Arts Center in a promotional partnership with Japan Society. Commissioned by Beth Morrison Projects.

This project was made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and by public funds from The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

PRESS for Garrett Fisher

“Mr. Fisher has combined elements of opera, dance, Indian raga, Japanese Noh theater and more into fusions that have both a ritualistic intensity and an improvisatory freedom…a strong, unified and strikingly individual utterance of unambiguous beauty.” – The New York Times 

 

PRESS for Ellen McLaughlin 

“[McLaughlin] is a dramatist of courage, intelligence, wit and lyricism”– Tony Kushner
 

PRESS for Rachel Dickstein
“Dickstein’s true innovation is in the visual language she creates, a striking blend of movement and video projection that conveys a fragmented yet distinctly ancient world.”
– The New Yorker
