The Memory Stone: An Original HGOco Opera
After the March 2011 Japanese earthquake and tsunami, a mysterious woman appears with a memory stone in Houston’s Japanese garden. The woman’s powers cause two Japanese American women to relive crucial moments from their respective pasts. The Memory Stone explores the invisible bond between the women, and how they support those who have been affected by the devastation of Japan’s earthquake and tsunami.
Music by Marty Regan. Libretto by Kenny Fries.
