Harold is a clockmaker working on a book called “The Aging Magician.” He has a bicycle he rides around his shop. He plays the accordion. His sister calls him a lot. He takes the F train home. He hears the voices of children.
Aging Magician is a meditation on the gifts we leave behind for those who come after us, and the hope that they pick up where we left off. It is also a celebration of youth, imagination, and the peculiar magic of ordinary life.
In its west coast premiere, Aging Magician is a hauntingly beautiful hybrid of opera and theatre that combines opera, choral music, and puppetry, produced by one of todays most influential and innovative taste makers, Beth Morrison Projects.
This show will be presenting at Balboa Theatre on the following dates:
• Friday, May 13 at 7:30 p.m.
• Saturday, May 14 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
The approximate run time is 1 hour and 25 minutes with no intermission.
