Presented by the Opera Theatre Ensemble
Hudson Hall, Mary Stewart Rogers Music Center

A new opera theatre work about the immigrant experience in the U.S. This one-act opera blends Chinese folk tunes and Chinese opera traditions with western operatic tradition to provide a compelling exploration of a timely topic-the complexity of social dynamics inherent in notions of resilience, race, solidarity, immigration, and settlement challenges.

Pre-concert talks precede each performance: Feb 4 at 6:30 pm, and Feb. 5 at 1:00 pm.

One-Log Bridge is commissioned by Willamette's University Chamber Orchestra & University Concert Band.
