Opera-art installation “Honey, Moon!”

World première

“Honey, Moon!” is a workout by musical astronauts. A wedding of human being, honey, and the Moon. The opera is an exhibition of live sculptures, where everything is moving on a different scale. From micro- to cosmo- one. The resonating vocal chords are responsive to muscular contractions of the bodybuilders. The surfaces of the performers‘ bodies and instruments evolve into planetary landscapes. The latter are rotating in the orbits of soundscapes that the listeners can engage in at any time. It is an open interplanetary route. Honey, the Moon, honeymoon… Honey, Moon!

Director and author of installation Julijonas Urbonas:

“What will happen to the genre of the opera when we catapult it into space? Or onto the Moon? Before answering, we first need to authorize a neologism combining the terms “interspecific” and “interplanetary”. This opera is a staging of such a neologism”.

Librettist Gabrielė Labanauskaitė-Diena:

“It is a contemporary, mystical dramatic journey, an allegory of the search for a person‘s other side and the discovery of himself / herself in any possible form – love, self-acceptance, illumination – on the Moon. “Honeymoon” is like a regular journey, like hitch-hiking that involves wearing a wedding dress and getting into cars of different experiences.”

Composer Gailė Griciūtė:

“The opera score includes electro-acoustic and live music. The chamber ensemble, the collage of records of the atmosphere, the modular synthesizer, the vocal ensemble, and the readers are like modules, or audio-planets that exist together and separately. Each of the sound sources builds a particularly fragile layer of musical texture; they interweave with each other and come together into a single flashing musical fabric of changing repetitiveness.”
