Cincinnati Opera and CCM Opera's joint Opera Fusion: New Works program presents excerpts from Postville: Hometown to the World by composer and librettist team Laura Kaminsky and Kimberly Reed, known for their partnership on the critically acclaimed opera As One. Their new work takes place in Postville, Iowa, which bills itself as the “Hometown to the World,” but which is known for a massive 2008 raid by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency at a Kosher meat-packing plant, in which over a tenth of the town’s population was arrested and deported.
Admission is free, but reservations are required. Tickets will become available through the Cincinnati Opera box office on Monday, November 5 at 10 AM. Call (513) 241-2742 to reserve.
