On Gold Mountain

LA Opera

Los Angeles, CA, United States

This is a past event


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.
