Upcoming production of The Three Feathers in Singapore

L'Arietta Productions will be producing the abridged version of The Three Feathers from November 18-24, 2019 under the artistic direction of Akiko Otao Larietta. This will mark the first time an opera composed by a woman will be performed in Singapore! 

Commissioned by the Center for the Arts at VA Tech, the opera is a re-telling of a Grimm's fairy tale by poet Dana Gioia. The story presents a young female protagonist, Princess Dora, as its hero. A magic feathers leads the shy, self-doubting princess to an enchanted Underworld ruled by a giant Frog King. Here she summons her courage and compassion to face a series of mysterious and comic adventures that change her life.
