The Edge of Forever is a pocket opera written for and about the ending of the Mayan Long Count Calendar on December 21, 2012. The opera will be performed only once on this exact day – a day that has been recorded in stone since the 9th century. Set in the legendary world of the Mayan Yucatán Peninsula, The Edge of Forever tells the epic tale of two people destined to be together. This love story, like the Mayan Calendar, is infinite and not bound by time.
