Blood Moon is a poetic opera-theatre piece for three characters who encounter the past on the night of a full moon: a nephew who returns to the mountain-top where he left his aunt to die forty years earlier, the ghost of the aunt he abandoned, and the moon that presides over this night of reckoning. A contemporary response to a 15th century Noh play, Blood Moon uses choreography, puppetry and a taiko-infused score to create a meditation on the end of life, the nature of joy, regret, and whether atonement is possible.

Composed by Garrett Fisher
Libretto by Ellen McLaughlin
Directed by Rachel Dickstein
 Music direction by Steven Osgood
Produced and commissioned by Beth Morrison Projects
