ABOUT THE PRODUCTION

Stranger from Paradise is a world premiere opera and co-production of Opera Omaha and the Great Plains Theatre Conference. Based on the life and work of the prophetic artist William Blake and his longtime collaborator and wife Catherine, the opera explores the struggle of creation while weaving through themes of love, death, and art as social conscience. Experimental in its approach, Stranger from Paradise infuses opera with an intimacy in text, design, performance, and tone that draws from the strengths of contemporary theatre production practices.
