Lyric Opera Theatre New Works Reading: 'The Halloween Tree'
Join us for a reading of a work in progress, aptly timed for Halloween. Traveling across space and time, from Egypt to Mexico, from prehistory to modern day, a group of children undertake an epic journey to find their friend Pipkin, who has mysteriously disappeared on Halloween night. Through their search, the children learn about the cultural and historical traditions that have led to the celebration of Halloween today. In collaboration with the ASU Chamber Singers. Appropriate for ages 12 and up.
Music by Theo Popov; libretto by Tony Asaro; based on the novel by Ray Bradbury, commissioned by American Lyric Theater; Lawrence Edelson, producing artistic director; developed under the auspices of the Composer Librettist Development Program.
