This gripping American drama wowed Broadway audiences during its original run, earning both the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Musical and 1950 Pulitzer Prize for Music. A devoted wife and mother clashes with the bureaucracy of a nameless police state while trying to obtain an exit visa for her family. The suspenseful narrative surprises with several magical touches and is buoyed by a melodic score in which love, hope, and redemption all play their part. Don’t miss this riveting Seattle Opera premiere!
