Little Women
Composer:Mark Adamo
Librettist:Mark Adamo
The opera is adapted from Alcott's classic novel of a young woman's understandable but doomed struggle to prevent life from taking her beloved sisters away from her. The story focuses on Jo, the second of four teenaged daughters in a free-thinking New England family during the Civil War era. Energetic and headstrong, Jo cherishes her perfect family life and doesn't want it to ever change. However, as life progresses with its joys, tragedies, conflicts, and resolutions, Jo comes to realize that the only way to the future is to accept the past as the past, no matter how happy yesterday was, because it can never come again. As she accepts this sad wisdom, a romantic interest enters her life.
