August 13: Seattle Opera World Premiere Community Preview: AN AMERICAN DREAM

Though we come from different places, no one escapes the pain of loss, the beauty of love. Written by Jack Perla, with Libretto by Jessica Murphy Moo, AN AMERICAN DREAM is inspired by true stories from our region’s history. Set during World War II, it explores the lives of two Puget Sound women: a Japanese American facing internment and a German Jewish immigrant preoccupied with those she left behind. A moderated audience discussion will follow the opera. Tickets for the Seattle Opera performances at McCaw Hall on August 21 & 23 range from $50 - $125. Admission to BPA's working community preview is by donation only. Suitable for ages 10 and older.
