The Broad Stage returns for a more robust performance calendar in early 2022; programming announcements are expected to be made in late fall.
The new opera is co-commissioned by The Broad Stage and will have four outdoor performance from Sept. 1-4. “Birds in the Moon” is supported by an Art of Recovery grant from the City of Santa Monica.
The opera is presented in partnership with Downtown Santa Monica at the corner of Arizona and 5th Avenue at Lot 27. “Birds in the Moon” is a mobile, theatrical chamber opera by Mark Grey and Julia Canosa i Serra and directed by Elkhanah Pulitzer. It will feature Maria Elena Altany as the Bird Mother and Austin Spangler as the Ringmaster.
The Broad Stage also announced two concerts that will mark the return of live performances. The Danish String Quartet will be performing on Friday, Oct. 8 and Duets will be performing on Saturday, Oct. 23.
Tickets go on sale on Thursday, July 15 and members only pre-sale begins Monday, July 12 at thebroadstage.org.
