SWEET LAND — A NEW OPERA BY THE INDUSTRY

The Industry’s acclaimed, suspended production of the opera SWEET LAND—composed by Raven Chacon and Du Yun, with a libretto by Aja Couchois Duncan and Douglas Kearney—is available now to stream anytime.

Co-directed by Yuval Sharon and costume designer Cannupa Hanska Luger, SWEET LAND is a “grotesque historical pageant that disrupts the dominant narrative of American identity. Starting as a procession through Los Angeles State Historic ParkSWEET LAND becomes an opera that erases itself.”*
