An eccentric and aging clockmaker is nearing the end of his life and preparing a book of secrets to pass on. At a critical point in his story, he must decide the fate of the magician…or is it his own fate? As Harold ponders these decisions, he finds himself transported inside a mystical musical realm where fiction and reality collide.

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 today’s most influential and innovative taste makers, Beth Morrison Projects.
