    Emmeline at Boston University Theatre


Boston University Theatre
264 Huntington Ave Boston

It's rare to find a completely American opera, so Emmeline makes for a good entry point into the art form. Sung in English with supertitles, this is an American retelling of the Oedipus myth from the female perspective. Based on a true story, the opera takes place in the 1800s, when 13-year-old Emmeline starts work in a Massachusetts factory. Seduced by the factory supervisor, she gives birth to a child, who is given away for adoption. Twenty years later, Emmeline marries a young man only to discover too late that he is in fact her son. Though the tale is tragic, the beauty of Emmeline is the strength of character that sees the heroine through to the end, as well as its powerful libretto. Sung in English with supertitles.
