Tapestry New Opera Works
An Asian elephant poached at a young age from the jungles of Indonesia recalls her remarkable life in captivity, far from home, as her keeper of 22 years leads her on a journey towards sanctuary in the hills of Tennesse. A dynamic weave of opera and dance unearths friendships, lost and found, and restores a stolen freedom. The power of memory and the wonder of communication in the human and natural worlds resonate in this moving new production that audiences will never forget.
