OPERA UNDER THE STARS

When the moon hits your eye, you're at the Planetarium

Diane Paulus was all about letting the sun shine in when she directed the current Broadway revival of Hair; now, she's turned her attention to the moon for a high-tech and starry-eyed staging of Haydn's opera Il mondo della luna (The World on the Moon). Under a 180-degree dome featuring laser lights and projections provided by NASA, the Gotham Chamber Opera tells the story of three sisters who hire a phony astronomer to convince their father he now lives on the moon, where marriage isn't so strictly regulated as it is here on Earth. The gay-rights movement may want to try that approach next.
Tue., Jan. 19, 7:30 p.m.; Wed., Jan. 20, 8 p.m.; Mon., Jan. 25, 8 p.m.; Tue., Jan. 26, 8 p.m.; Thu., Jan. 28, 8 p.m., 2010
