Young Friends Night
World Premiere of the New Performing Edition
Hope will never be silent.
Based on the true story of Harvey Milk, this opera delves into the tumultuous era of the 1970s to trace one young man’s rise to lead a movement. During his time as the “Mayor of Castro Street,” Harvey Milk fought for the rights of the disenfranchised…and paid the ultimate price for his work to advance those freedoms. Through Milk’s legacy, we are reminded that we are more united than divided, regardless of our background.
Co-commissioned by Opera Parallèle and Opera Theatre of Saint Louis.
