OPERA UNDER THE STARS
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.
