Event Description:
Co-presented with Fresh Squeezed Opera

NYC Premiere of composer Huang Ruo and librettist Bao-Long Chu’s one-act chamber opera directed by Ashley Tata

APRIL 13 - 18, 2019
Rose Nagelberg Theatre


“One of the world’s leading young composers” – The New Yorker.

Chamber opera inspired by a news headline: “Diane Tran, Honor Student at Texas High School, Jailed for Missing School” explores the experience of a Vietnamese immigrant family torn between the notion of the American dream and preserving their cultural heritage. Combining Eastern and Western instruments and musical techniques, Bound fluidly interweaves the past and the present as it explores the cultural conflicts immigrants face on a daily basis.
