Synopsis

“You have no idea of this wild and barbarous life.” –Dame Shirley

Cultures and personalities collide in the crucible of the California Gold Rush. Sourced from historical writings, this opera follows remarkable characters who flock to Gold Country hoping to strike it rich but are quickly caught up in the optimism, greed and prejudices of a rapidly changing world.
