Misc. Comments

  • Emma is a two-act opera based on the play with the same name by Howard Zinn (revised in 1987) about the American Anarchist Emma Goldman (1869–1940). The narrative of the opera is woven from relationships and events in Goldman’s autobiography Living My Life. It is at once a story of a passionately-driven social and political reformer, and the story of a woman torn between her feminist ideals and her vulnerability in matters of love. The action of the opera begins 1887 when Emma is an 18-year-old factory worker in Rochester and ends in 1917 when, at age 48, she is about to be exiled to Russia. The music is mainly tonal with a musical color that often evokes the Yiddish theatre of the early 20th century.
