A chamber opera in one act in concert form
Set during Iran’s Green Movement – a precursor to the Arab Spring- We the Innumerable explores one woman’s courage to demand freedom in the face of state-sanctioned violence and resist the distorted reality of authoritarianism.
We, The Innumerable considers lessons about political violence and revolt learned from the Iranian Green Movement including the fragility of democracy, the poison of propaganda, and the collective will of the people.
In 2019 this opera received the Discovery Grant from Opera America for the female composers program.
Workshop premiere – October 21, 2022 7.30 PM
National Sawdust, Brooklyn, NY
