"This SFS co-commission, inspired by The Magic Flute, is an escape into dream and myth and comes on the heels of Adams’s opera Doctor Atomic. Peter Sellars, co-librettist with the composer, returns to direct this semi-staged production. "

A Flowering Tree was commissioned by New Crowned Hope (Vienna), San Francisco Symphony, Barbican Centre (London), Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts (New York), and Berliner Philharmoniker.

These performances are made possible by The Bernard and Barbro Osher Staged Production Fund.
