HAROUN & THE SEA OF STORIES

(an Opera sung in English with supertitles)

Conjuring up a fantasy world of brilliantly imagined adventures,
HAROUN AND THE SEA OF STORIES makes its long-awaited world premiere
this fall at New York City Opera. Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Charles Wuorinen
and renowned poet James Fenton have adapted Salman Rushdie’s novel about
free speech and the power of storytelling to the stage in a magical work Time Out
New York calls “one of the fall’s most highly anticipated operas. Given Wuorinen’s
consummate gifts as an orchestrator, the opera will no doubt prove a dazzler.”
