Seattle Opera: An American Dream

Perla/Moo – An American Dream

Provocative drama with local connections.

Treasured possessions become symbols of home in this Seattle Opera commission, inspired by true stories from our region’s history. Set during World War II, this opera explores the lives of two Puget Sound women: a Japanese American forced to leave her home and a German Jewish immigrant preoccupied by those she left behind. An American Dream is accompanied by a 15-piece orchestra.

We are excited to partner with historic Washington Hall for this special presentation. The iconic venue has been a fixture in Seattle’s multi-cultural performing arts scene for decades including performances by greats Billie Holliday and Ella Fitzgerald. The intimate venue, once home to On The Boards, completed an extensive renovation and is once again opening its doors to innovative cultural offerings as a safe and welcoming place to gather create, entertain, and celebrate.

Performance in English.
