Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising and the beginning of the modern LGBTQ civil rights movement, Stonewall is an explosive new American opera that captures the rage, grit, humor and, finally, hope of the LGBTQ+ community’s uprising in a Greenwich Village dance club on one hot night in June 1969. The work follows a diverse group of characters whose lives collide at that pivotal moment in history when they find the courage to fight back. New York City Opera commissioned composer Iain Bell, librettist Mark Campbell, and director Leonard Foglia to create Stonewall.
