According to Gilli Moon's blog, she's writing the music/score for this "musical", so I'm not sure what you're likely to see. If you'd like to hear some of Gilli's music prior to the performance of the opera to get a sense of what's to come (at a much reduced price - $7) Wednesday, October 29, 2008 gilli moon's Songsalive! Showcase at 740 N. Fairfax Ave. L.A CA 90046, or you can visit her website.
I took sometime to go out and listen to some of gilli's music. it's definitely in the pop genre - think of Edie Brickell or Tori Amos.
