Bright Sheng – The Silver River

The Silver River weaves Chinese and Western cultures into a magical operatic masterpiece of exquisite beauty. This CMNW co-commisioned contemporary production is conceived by two renowned Asian artists: composer Bright Sheng, and librettist and Tony Award-winner David Henry Hwang. The Silver River updates a legendary 5,000-year-old Chinese myth of ill-fated love between a celestial being and a mortal, ultimately interpreting the creation of night and day.

This special presentation is sponsored by Kirk Hall In Memory of Lisa Shara Hall.

Premieres July 6 at 10am Pacific. Available all of Week 3 through July 12 at 11:59pm Pacific.
