“The Sun and the Moon” Premiere
May 2017 brings the premiere of the newest chamber opera commissioned by AFA for the Houston Girls Chorus. The Sun and the Moon, composed by Mary Carol Warwick with a libretto by Michael Remson, is based on a traditional Korean folktale which tells the story of how eclipes came to be. The opera was commissioned to celebrate the solar eclipse on August 21, the first in the U.S. in three decades. Other favorite choral works are also on the program.
