The Santa Fe Opera presents the world premiere of Hometown To The World, at the Lensic Performing Arts Center, December 17 & 19, 2021. This intimate opera, written by Laura Kaminsky and Kimberly Reed, was born of the complex intersection of race, religion, ethnicity and culture that was exposed following the 2008 U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency raid of America’s largest kosher meatpacking plant in Postville, Iowa. Commissioned by the Santa Fe Opera and its Opera for All Voices consortium partners, this timely one-act opera seeks to create greater awareness, thoughtful dialogue and insightful responses to the issues surrounding immigration, citizenship, economic viability and cultural cohesion. Hometown to the World runs for 75 minutes with no intermission and is sung in English. Proof of vaccination and masking are required for all attendees. Dates are Friday, December 17, 7 p.m., and Sunday, December 19, 2 p.m. Tickets are $25 and seat assignments are first come, first served. For more information, visit the website.
