Workshop for "Rated R for Rat" -- an eco-opera
Now in development with American Opera Projects and Festival Opera, Wang Jie's "Rated R for Rat" wildly re-imagines the myths of the Chinese Zodiac animals to encompass zany comedy and to dramatize serious social issues.
In a post-apocalyptic world, the Zodiac gods suffer a crisis as their human underlings lose interest in reproducing. The Lark, a chirpy court entertainer who dreams of becoming the thirteenth goddess, descends to the Earth to solve the mystery. Through the journey, she discovers her real passion, and thereby revives the world.

Festival Opera is presenting a workshop of this work-in-development in collaboration with the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. ONLY 80 SEATS FOR WORKSHOP!!!
The production is slated to premiere at Festival Opera in Fall 2017.
