Jack Perla’s An American Dream
March 5 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Treasured possessions become symbols of home in this contemporary opera inspired by true stories from American history.
Set during World War II, this eloquent, gripping American opera explores the lives of two women: a Japanese American forced into internment, and a German-Jewish immigrant preoccupied by those she left behind.
While this opera is a piece of fiction, the story was crafted from interviews with residents of Puget Sound, Washington, who experienced the mass incarceration of Japanese Americans during WWII.
