Love blooms in the ravishing beauty of American composer John Adams’ recent opera inspired by a mystical folktale from India. A Flowering Tree is the story of a young couple’s sacrifice and transformation for love. Universal truths of the human experience will be vividly expressed by a powerful cast including modern dancers and a large chorus, together illuminating the breathtaking sonic landscapes.

Six dancers representing some of the country's top dance companies and institutions add to an international cast of singers, the Opera Omaha Chorus, and the Omaha Symphony to complete the cast of Opera Omaha's new production of John Adams' opera, A Flowering Tree.

"It's a formidable ensemble of artists across the board," said General Director Roger Weitz. "Combined with the production's creative team, it's among the most adventurous and talented groups assembled by a modern opera company."
