The piece, which details the amorous intrigues and adventures of the 14th century Italian novelist, Giovanni Boccaccio, last received prominence in this area when it was mounted by the Metropolitan Opera in 1931.

Silver River
July 16th, 18th, 19th, 20th, 2002 at 8:30pm and July 21st, 2002 at 3:00pm
Lincoln Center Summer Festival presents this New York premiere.
Music by Bright Sheng. Libretto by David Henry Hwang. Directed by Ong Keng Sen. Choreography by Muna Tseng.
The Silver River weaves Chinese and Western cultures into a magical masterpiece of exquisite beauty. This striking contemporary production is conceived by three renowned Asian artists: MacArthur recipient and composer Bright Sheng, librettist and Tony Award–winner David Henry Hwang, and Singaporean director Ong Keng Sen. Each of these artists has developed an international reputation by creating groundbreaking assimilations of Eastern and Western aesthetics in music and theater. Taking its title from the Chinese name for Milky Way, The Silver River updates a legendary 5,000-year-old Chinese myth of ill-fated love between a celestial being and a mortal, ultimately interpreting the creation of night and day. "It celebrates the dream of a perfect love struggling to survive in our imperfect world," wrote the collaborators. "Sheng and Hwang have fashioned a music theater fable of great charm and imagination," praised the Chicago Tribune. "With sweet simplicity, their opera creates magic before our eyes." "The Silver River is a powerful theatrical event not to be missed."—The Christian Science Monitor. In Mandarin and English, with English narration.
