Beth Wiemann's I Give You My Home, premiere with Guerilla Opera, Nov. 29

The premiere broadcast of “I Give You My Home”, with music and libretto by Beth Wiemann and stage direction by Cara Consilvio, will take place at the Guerilla Opera Emergence Festival (Nov 29-Dec 2, 2022). This live production of Wiemann's site-specific chamber opera at the Nichols House Museum in Boston, MA, which premiered on June 3, 2022, brings to light the efforts and passions of Rose Standish Nichols (1872-1960), a true-life Bostonian who was a professional landscape architect, published author, and an activist for the Women’s Peace Movement and Women’s Suffrage. 

This performance is the first of a three-part artistic and transient journey for the opera. In March of 2023, Women’s History Month, The Guerillas will present the world premiere of an operatic film adaptation of the opera, which filmed at locations throughout New England. 

The opera is a monodrama written for Guerilla Opera’s core ensemble members: soprano and Artistic Director Aliana de la Guardia as Rose, percussionist and co-founding artist Mike Williams, and saxophonist Philipp Stäudlin.

This is an online video-on-demand program of Guerilla Opera, with ticketing available for the whole festival or individual programs at flex pricing.

The score and parts are available through American Composers Edition (BMI).
