Aging Magician

by Paola Prestini
Libretto by Rinde Eckert
Creative Producer Beth Morrison Projects

At the Balboa Theatre

An eccentric and aging clockmaker is nearing the end of his life and preparing a book of secrets to pass on. At a critical point in his story, he must decide the fate of the magician…or is it his own fate? As Harold ponders these decisions, he finds himself transported inside a mystical musical realm where fiction and reality collide.

In its west coast premiere, Aging Magician is a hauntingly beautiful hybrid of opera and theatre that combines opera, choral music, and puppetry, produced by one of today’s most influential and innovative taste makers, Beth Morrison Projects.
