The Gift is an immersive experience for all ages that explores what we can learn about ourselves—and each other—by observing the stars. Participants will gather at reading tables on Jerry Moss Plaza at The Music Center in Downtown Los Angeles, enveloped in an original orchestral score. There, they will encounter an illustrated book that conveys the story of two stars whose fates are intertwined; one of these stars will, at the end of its life, give over its matter—everything it has, everything it is—to its companion. A special preview of The Gift for young audiences will be presented inside the 100-inch telescope dome at the Mount Wilson Observatory.
