An American Dream
Special Presentation With Seattle Opera

Tuesday, June 30, 2015 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

An American Dream is a new opera born out of a simple question:  If you had to leave your home today and could only take one thing with you, what would you take? Seattle Opera asked this question to hundreds of people, and two answers lead to the creation of an opera set in the Puget Sound during WWII. This new work has at its center the story of a Japanese American family and their forcible relocation and incarceration.  

On June 30, join Jessica Murphy Moo, An American Dream’s librettist, and Nick Malinowski, Seattle Opera’s Community Programs Manager, for an exploration of the opera, and a discussion about the history and the themes that run through this powerful and important new piece.

In addition to representatives from Seattle Opera, the event will include guest speaker Mako Nakagawa of the Japanese American Citizens League, and a former incarceree during World War II. 

This is a chance to listen, learn, and share your experience as it relates to a story that is central to our community. 

An American Dream is a production of the Seattle Opera’s 2015-2016 season. Join us, as we learn and hear more about this upcoming production.

This program is FREE and open to the public.

Doors will open at 6pm.

Please note: the museum galleries will be closed at 5pm.

Location: In the Tateuchi Story Theatre
Fees: Free and open to the public.
