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.

• Friday, May 13 at 7:30 p.m.
• Saturday, May 14 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
