The Flood
Composer:Korine Fujiwara
Librettist:Stephen Wadsworth
Synopsis
A collaboration between Opera Columbus and ProMusica Chamber Orchestra, The Flood of 1913 tells a story of human connection through loss and shared tragedy, centered around the devastation of Columbus’ Franklinton neighborhood in the Great Flood of 1913, the most catastrophic weather disaster in Ohio history. The Flood of 1913 will premiere in Columbus on February 8, 9, and 10, 2019. The opera will tell a dramatic story based on historical accounts of the flood, depicting the intense and lingering impact of the disaster on multiple generations of one family. In the words of Korine Fujiwara: "The Great Flood of 1913 is a story rooted in location, yet the struggles endured by its survivors and victims are timeless and transformative. The Flood is poignantly relevant to all who have experienced a traumatic event, giving voice to lives lost and survivors seeking meaningful answers."
