An American Dream
About An American Dream
Set during World War II, this opera explores the lives of two women: a Japanese American forced to leave her home, and a German-Jewish immigrant preoccupied by those she left behind. In its Seattle Opera world premiere, it was called “a heart-wrenching opera… eloquent and moving” by The Seattle Times. Join Lyric Opera for this premiere of a contemporary American chamber opera.
Music by Jack Perla
Libretto by Jessica Murphy Moo
Sung in English with projected English text.
