Aaron Copland’s opera is set in a rural Midwestern town in the 1930s. Conducted by Virginia Opera Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor Adam Turner, the story is about Laurie Moss. Laurie meets Martin, an itinerant worker hired to help with the spring harvest on her family’s farm. As this coming-of-age story unfolds, a romance blossoms between the two.
