San Francisco Opera Girls of the Golden West

WORLD PREMIERE

“You have no idea of this wild and barbarous life.” –Dame Shirley 

Sourced from historical writings, this world premiere opera follows remarkable characters who flock to Gold Country hoping to strike it rich but are quickly caught up in the optimism, greed and prejudices of a rapidly changing world.

Music by John Adams | Libretto by Peter Sellars, drawn from original sources | Sung in English with English supertitles
