Producing Company: Opera Tampa at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center
Description: The opera centers around a robbery and double murder outside of Boston in 1920 and the controversial trial. The suspects were Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, Italian immigrants and known anarchists. Coppola says, "Even today, the question of their guilt or innocence and the fairness of their trial continues to confound the conscience of many. The opera does not attempt a solution, but rather, a presentation of the circumstances and the characters involved in a dramatic tragedy."
