NOOMA, an opera for babies
Approximate Run-time: 50-55 minutes
This new opera for babies uses parachutes to create an intimate world of wonder and interaction.
Designed by Moving Star Vocal Ensemble, the performance invites our youngest audiences into an expanding and contracting world and immerses them in a parachute’s movements as it becomes a metaphor for breathing. Bring imagination and your full selves into this baby and toddler-centric experience designed just for them!
World Premiere at Carnegie Hall, April 2019, co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall, the Minnesota Opera and the San Francisco Opera.
NOOMA’s Midwest premiere is part of the Ordway’s Flint Hills Family Festival and is produced by the Minnesota Opera in partnership with Carnegie Hall and featuring Rebecca Blackwell, Ivory Doublette, and Sara Sawyer.
