An opera for all ages, Murasaki's Moon is a journey into the world of Lady Murasaki, the 11th century lady-in-waiting at the imperial court of Japan who changed the world of literature with her ground-breaking creation, The Tale of the Genji. Her extraordinary creation is attributed to be the first novel ever written.
The opera, set to music that includes beautiful Japanese instrumentation, is an inspiring story that connects present-day audiences to Murasaki's struggles, which are not unlike our own in the 21st Century.
