In this Pulitzer Prize-winning American work, a devoted wife and mother clashes with the bureaucracy of a nameless police state while trying to obtain an exit visa for her persecuted family. Menotti's nailbiting 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 gripping Seattle Opera premiere.
