U.S. Premiere

BOOK OF MOUNTAINS & SEAS

January 11-14 at 8pm | January 15 at 2pm at St. Ann's Warehouse | 75 minutes

Inspired by the ancient Chinese compilation of early myths of the same title, which was first transcribed in 4th century B.C, these mythological stories have become part of Chinese written and oral history, shifted and reshaped to match contemporary times. Book of Mountains & Seas is a 21st-century adaptation and expansion of four of these tales by composer Huang Ruo, director/puppetry artist Basil Twist, and music director Paul Hillier.

This production is dedicated to Stuart Nelson.

Book of Mountains & Seas was commissioned by Beth Morrison Projects, Ars Nova (Copenhagen), Moss Arts Center/ Virginia Tech, Toronto Soundstreams, Koorbiennale, and Hong Kong New Vision Festival, and Linda & Stuart Nelson.

Book of Mountains and Seas is made possible by the Jim Henson Foundation, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
