A new opera by Missy Mazzoli tells the story of a Nebraska family trying to prove up their government-issued land from the Homestead Act of 1862. Their hardships are explored in a brilliant score by Mazzoli that was co-commissioned by The Kennedy Center, Colombia University, and Opera Omaha. Austin McWilliams conducts this performance.
