Featuring the 50-plus musicians of the UCR Orchestra and UCR student performers singing the musical story of Princess Ten Ten and the Dark Skies.
This coming-of-age story features a gender-nonconforming princess, the mythical land of Fusan, and an environmental crisis that will take all her courage and skill to battle. Music is by composer and actress Jacqueline Emerson (“Hunger Games”) arranged by Lee Huff and spectacularly set for full orchestra by Tim Labor and Christiaan Clark.
Princess Ten Ten and the Dark Skies was one of the Guardian Princesses books, a series and organization founded by Setsu Shigematsu that’s transforming the cultural meaning of princesses and princes into positive role models who work together to protect people and the planet for future generations.
