Ancram Opera House presents SUNWATCHER
A Noh-Inspired Musical
Music by Tidtaya Sinutoke
Book and lyrics by Isabella Dawis
Directed by Nana Dakin
An experimental chamber musical inspired by classical Noh theatre, SUNWATCHER intertwines the story of two women — the astronomer and “hidden figure” Hisako Koyama (1916-1997), and the Japanese sun goddess Amaterasu.
This production is presented as part of Ancram Opera House’s Summer Play Lab residency. Work-in-progress showings on May 27-29. Friday, Saturday at 8p; Sunday at 3p. For tickets and more information, visit www.ancramoperahouse.org.
