Adaptations: NY City Opera Performance: Stonewall
Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the uprising, Stonewall is a moving and explosive new American opera that captures the rage, grit, humor, and, finally, hope of the LGBTQ community's uprising in a Greenwich Village dance club on one hot night in June 1969. The work is divided into three parts and follows a diverse group of characters whose lives collide at that pivotal moment in history when the police push them too far and they find the courage to fight back. This event is for Adaptations members only.
