Gotham Chamber Opera, in partnership with the American Museum of Natural History and in association with American Repertory Theater, presents Il mondo della luna (The World on the Moon) by Joseph Haydn. For the first time ever, the Hayden Planetarium will be transformed into an intimate opera house. Taking advantage of breakthroughs in laser and light technology, Il mondo della luna will fuse live opera and stargazing using the 180-degree dome with projections courtesy of NASA, immersing the audience in a completely new kind of theatrical event: an out-of-this-world experience for opera lovers, science buffs, and theatergoers alike.
This new production is staged by Diane Paulus, director of Hair, which received the 2009 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical. Il mondo della luna will run from January 19 through January 28 at the Hayden Planetarium in the Rose Center for Earth and Space at the American Museum of Natural History.
