Full video release of Pittsburgh Opera's In A Grove, based on short story by Ryūnosuke Akutagawa, now available online through summer.

In case you missed the May 15 release, Pittsburgh Opera's video of In A Grove, the opera based on short story by Ryūnosuke Akutagawa that played in Pittsburgh this past February and March, is now available online through the summer.
If you missed our world premiere run this past February, this is your chance to see what onStage Pittsburgh calls "an all round, world-class collaboration," and what the Wall Street Journal dubs "alluring and dramatically hypnotic."

Music by Christopher Cerrone, libretto by Stephanie Fleischmann, based on the short story by Ryūnosuke Akutagawa. Antony Walker conducts; Mary Birnbaum directs.
