Seven travelers find themselves waiting together in a train station, each with their own story and luggage. As they describe their belongings to fellow passengers, they begin to unpack their personal secrets. With each revelation, there is a deep exploration of identity and morality that is both delightful and deeply stirring.

Dominick Argento is a Pulitzer Prize and Grammy© Award winner and Postcard From Morocco is lyrical and delightfully fresh, drawing influences from every type of music, from Wagner to ragtime. Kevin Newbury, whose work on Galileo Galilei was called “vivid and entertaining” by Oregon Music News, returns to direct, William Vendice, conductor.  Performance repeats March 23, 2:00 pm, March 27 and 29, 7:30 pm. For ticket information please call the Portland Opera Box Office at 503-241-1802.

Sung in English with projections above the stage.

Please note: Dominick Argento’s POSTCARD FROM MOROCCO has replaced A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM in the 2013/14 Season
