CBST Trip to the Opera: STONEWALL

One of the most hotly anticipated events this year is the world premiere of Stonewall, by Iain Bell and Mark Campbell, being given five performances by New York City Opera in the Rose Theater of Jazz at Lincoln Center. The opera was inspired by the events of precisely 50 years ago, in June 1969, when patrons of the Stonewall Inn, a dance club in Greenwich Village, resisted police harassment and, in so doing, launched the movement for equal rights for LGBTQ people. - Fred Plotkin

Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the uprising, Stonewall is a moving and explosive new American opera that captures the rage, grit, humor and, finally, hope of the LGBTQ community's uprising in a Greenwich Village dance club on one hot night in June 1969. The work is divided into three parts and follows a diverse group of characters whose lives collide at that pivotal moment in history when the police push them too far and they find the courage to fight back.

The performance will take place at the Rose Theater at Lincoln Center. Located on the fifth floor of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall in the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle, Rose Theater is the venue’s largest performing arts space.
