Presented by the Thespis Festival 2016 (New York Theater Festival)
The Pearl Diver
By E. Thomalen
Music Composed by Edward W. Hardy

The Pearl Diver is a magical tale told about a young female, who dives for pearls, and a Sea Dragon. It dramatizes a Japanese legend told in many variations and forms while featuring original Japanese music. It appears in Japanese Kabuki dance, in a medieval Noh play, and was visually rendered in Japanese illustrated scrolls.
