ABOUT THE PRODUCTION

Set in the brutal early years of post-Civil War Nebraska, a mother is pushed to the brink as her family is pulled apart by loss and isolation. Her son, Miles, must bear the weight of the family’s unrelenting pursuit of the American Dream. Opera Omaha’s ONE Festival Artistic Director, James Darrah, and a world-renowned ensemble together will bring Mazzoli’s innovative and haunting score to life.
