Bound-Chamber Opera at Tagney-Jones Hall

A Truly American Opera

Like Lowbrow Opera Collective, Seattle Opera is de-museumifying opera and producing some interesting chamber opera with living, breathing, in the flesh composers and librettists whose subjects are not 18th century Viennese noblemen (much as I like those operas) but about truly American experiences such as immigration. A chamber opera, Bound, which opened this weekend in the intimate space at Tagney-Jones Hall, was just such an opera.
