Read about the project in the San Jose Mercury News:

Just as relevant today as when it premiered in 1950, The Consul is an American opera that tells the story of a woman trying to flee an unnamed totalitarian country who is stopped and ultimately killed by the extreme vetting necessary to obtain a visa.

The show has a sweeping score, with stirring arias and powerful ensembles. This production will be staged in a black box theater that will put the audience in the consulate waiting room together with the actors, and the intimate setting will reinforce the poignancy of the message.

Due to some disturbing scenes and mature themes, this show will likely not be appropriate for children.
