American Patriots Opera

Virginia Theological Seminary is excited to host American Patriots, a new theatrical song cycle that portrays the experiences of Americans today from four different perspectives: Black, Indigenous, new American, and white working-class American.
Co-commissioned by VTS, this thought-provoking work asks us to actively examine the way we think about race, class, and who America is for. It extends an invitation to broaden our perspectives and gain a deeper understanding of the lives of fellow Americans with whom we may not have previously connected.
The songs, which are based on interviews with 50 Americans from across the nation, reflect the diversity of the US, ranging from classical, to jazz, to Broadway, while being funny, serious, and alarming.

Tickets are $20 each. Use the promo code DISCOUNT5 for a $5 ticket for Thursday’s open dress rehearsal.
