News - European Premiere of John Harbison's Opera 'Full Moon in March' in London

Wednesday, September 19, 2012
The Mornington Trust in association with Lontano and Musical Elements presents the European premiere of John Harbison's opera Full Moon in March, as part of The Fourth London Festival of American Music.

Based on a play by W. B. Yeats, the story of Full Moon in March follows a beautiful Queen who has agreed to marry the suitor whose song moves her the most. A Swinehead presents himself and she is both attracted and repelled by him. He never gets to sing his song for her, at least not while alive. Two attendants describe and comment on the actions and themes of the opera and eventually take over as the protagonists' voices.
