Just when you lose all faith in humanity, someone hits a new low.
This Pulitzer Prize-winning new opera by Du Yun is an allegory of human trafficking in modern times. Two fallen angels are battered and bruised from their long journey to earth. They are found by a man and wife who nurse them back to health, only to exploit them for profit and personal use. The eclectic and lyrical score uses a variety of musical genres in this profound and haunting new opera, the latest production in our multi-season collaboration with the groundbreaking Beth Morrison Projects.
