Andrew Norman in the PSNY Greenroom



PSNY recently sat down in the Greenroom with Andrew Norman
to discuss his first opera—A Trip to the Moon—which is set to premiere at the Berlin Philharmonic, conducted by Sir Simon Rattle, on June 17th. Inspired by George Méliès' 1902 silent film A Trip to the Moon, Norman has written a work that deftly combines his compositional intensity with idiomatic vocal writing, creating an opera ostensibly for children that retains a much wider scope. Co-commissioned by the Berlin Philharmonic, the London Symphony Orchestra, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, A Trip to the Moon will have its UK premiere on July 9 and US premiere on March 2, 2018. 

In developing the work, Norman comments, 

What appealed to me the most about this story was the fact that I could use it to explore how communities deal with the 'other' in their midst. This is, of course, timely in all sorts of ways all over the world.  I was deeply affected by contemporary events while writing the opera, and in many ways this project is a response to the devastating rhetoric of fear, anger, and hate toward the other that I see welling up in so many places.

Check out the full discussion, along with a sampling of Norman's other works, here.
