FRACTURED MOSAICS: a live virtual opera (WHITE SNAKE PROJECTS 2023 SEASON)
April 3 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
Live online & free.
An operatic response to the surge in anti-Asian hate crimes, Fractured Mosaics explores the kaleidoscope of cultures and politics of the 20 different ethnic groups that are encompassed under the insufficient umbrella term of “Asian American.” In this live digital opera, five composer-librettists teams create operatic vignettes of Asian Americans establishing themselves in the United States.
