"A brother and sister live in a fantasy world, a “game” of their own imagining. Friends from the outside world try to enter, but the once-harmless game becomes a fierce and tragic struggle. This beautiful and haunting piece features a quartet of young singers along with dancers from Carolina Ballet. We celebrate the 75th birthday of one of America’s most popular composers."
