Flight is a one act circus opera consisting of two parts. The first part is animation projected onto circus silks depicting a tale of a magical orchard that blooms women. When a king comes to capture the beautiful ladies they barely escape. All except one.
The second part is a live performance about this same woman who is now the queen and the relationship she forces with a bird played by Katie Gardner on trapeze.
