An American Dream

Music by J. Perla

What is Home?

Imagine you had to leave your home forever tomorrow and could take only what you could carry. What would it be and why?

Inspired by actual events, this powerful contemporary opera explores the stories of two women living in the Pacific Northwest during World War II.

A Japanese American is forced from her home into an internment camp, while a Jewish-German immigrant desperately worries about the fate of her family she left in Germany.

A tender yet heart-wrenching examination of possessions as symbols of connection—and of the soul.

In English with English supertitles. New production.
