Following his successful production of Jonathan Dove’s Mansfield Park, director Tim Albery, The Azrieli Foundation Opera Visiting Artist, returns to stage the Opera Division’s premiere of Aaron Copland’s The Tender Land. Inspired by the Depression-era photographs of Walker Evans and James Agee’s novel, Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, Copland and his librettist Horace Everett have fashioned a unique coming of age of story set in rural America. The narrative follows the journey of Laurie Moss, a young woman who struggles between loyalty to home and family and her compelling need to make her own way in the world. This new production is designed by Michelle Tracey. Sandra Horst conducts.
