Inspired by Georges Méliès’ 1902 film A Trip to the Moon, Grawemeyer-winning composer Andrew Norman’s whimsical opera tells the story of a band of bumbling astronomers as they explore the moon, try to fix their broken rocket, and interact with a mysterious race of moon people who are facing a perilous threat of their own. Yuval Sharon directed the production of the premiere as part of his position as Artist-Collaborator at the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
