Visiting Company

Paula M. Kimper's Patience & Sarah is the very first opera to tell a love story between two women. These women lead very different lives, and each must take their own journey towards self-acceptance and forgiveness in order to leave lives shrouded in judgment. Throughout it all, the strength of the female soul soars as we watch Patience and Sarah struggle against class barriers, familial expectations, and societal conventions in order to bravely embrace their own identities and each other.
