Murasaki’s Moon

May 17, 2019 - May 19, 2019

In collaboration with the Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Lyric Theater, On Site Opera presents the world premiere of “Murasaki’s Moon,” a site-specific opera by composer Michi Wiancko and librettist Deborah Brevoort.

21CM Takeaway: “Murasaki’s Moon” is inspired by the life and work of Lady Murasaki, author of “The Tale of Genji,” which is considered to be the world’s first novel. This dramatic reimagination of Lady Murasaki’s life is presented in conjunction with the museum’s exhibition, “‘The Tale of Genji:’ A Japanese Classic Illuminated.”
