Hometown to the World Premiere!

Hometown to the World Premiere!

Hometown to the World is set in 2008, in the aftermath of the nation’s largest Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency raid of North America’s biggest kosher meat processing plant, in Postville, Iowa. This opera tells the story of how the worlds of three characters from the community’s main ethnic, religious, and linguistic groups collide in the wake of this brutal ICE raid. The result is a complex tale that ends with a message of hope and equity. 

Production support for the world premiere of Hometown to the World has been generously provided by the Melville Hankins Family Foundation, Principal Education Sponsor of the Santa Fe Opera. Commissioning and development support was provided by the Melville Hankins Family Foundation and two OPERA America Innovation Grants, generously funded by the Ann & Gordon Getty Foundation.
