Product details

This chamber opera is in seven scenes and is inspired by traditional Japanese haiku which commonly reflect on the transition between the seasons. The plum blossom is a common signifier of spring. The plot of the opera follows the Plum Blossom who is caught in the Spider Maiden's web while attempting to see the world by riding on the wind on the last day of spring. The two characters sing about their respective positions in the world and the Spider Maiden offers the Plum Blossom one opportunity to be set free by solving a musical riddle.
