A Chamber Opera
Expanded from "From the Other Sky"
RATED R FOR RAT
Campy, whimsical and evocative, the 60-minute “Rate R for Rat” portrays the fable of how the thirteen animals of the Chinese Zodiac downsized to twelve. Experiencing human compassion for the first time, this thirteenth Zodiac Goddess loses her place in the heavens to share her musical powers with mankind.
