Opera: "Taki-no Shiraito" 滝の白糸
Libretto written by Madoka Mayuzumi, music composed by Akira Senju
The Japan Times
"Thoughtfully annotated to render them accessible to all, these touching haiku offer sadness and hope in unequal measure."
"Mayuzumi is one of a number of Japanese poets who have achieved the kind of celebrity status that in most countries is reserved for superstar athletes or entertainers. This is possible because no country in the world takes poetry more seriously than Japan."
The New York Times
"Un voyage poétique au féminin en partage dans le Japon contemporain et son univers traditionnel."
