OPERA: STAGE DIRECTOR/CONCEPT DESIGNER

Luna Pearl Woolf's Angel Heart
Cal Performances in Hertz Hall on Oct. 6th at 5 p.m. 
http://www.calperfs.berkeley.edu/performances/2013-14/for-families/angel-heart.php
New York’s Carnegie Hall, in Zankel on Monday, October 21, 2013 | 7 PM http://www.carnegiehall.org/Calendar/2013/10/21/0700/PM/Angel-Heart-a-music-storybook/

Based on the story by children’s book author, Cornelia Funke, Angel Heart tells the story of a young girl who finds peace after heartbreak with the help of a petulant guardian angel. The music, a mix of lullabies, folk songs and original music by Luna Pearl Woolf will be performed by Frederica von Stade, Lisa Delan, Daniel Taylor and Sanford Sylvan as well as Oakland’s St. Martin de Porres School Chorus with Matt Haimovitz’s all-cello ensemble, Uccello.  Angel Heart will be released in September as a CD storybook and iPad App featuring the same cast with the exception of mezzo-soprano Zheng Cao who died last February. All performances will be dedicated to her memory.
