About the event
As part of LA Opera's 2021/2022 season:
Experience a unique outdoor opera at The Huntington Gardens based on the best-selling novel.
On Gold Mountain, composed by Nathan Wang and based on the book by Lisa See, tells the true story of Fong See, a pioneer of Los Angeles’ Chinatown who immigrated to America to work and find his fortune. Along the way he overcame many obstacles, finding both love and hardship. Most importantly, he discovered himself. In the opera, we not only relive the experiences of Fong See, his American wife Ticie, and other Chinese pioneers, but we also realize the ways in which memory and experience influence our sense of who we are.
Performances will be presented in the Chinese Garden at The Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens. Tickets can be purchased directly on the Huntington's website starting on February 15th.
Running time: Approximately 90 minutes without intermission.
The cast, chorus, and orchestra will include students and members from community groups in the Greater Los Angeles area.
