Travel back home to the Midwest where it's the 1930's. Laurie is just about to graduate high school when she meets Top and Martin, travelers who arrive at her home. A coming-of-age story, this accessible opera by famous American composer Aaron Copland, shows the innocence of love, the mistrust of strangers, and the discovery of one's self. Sung in English, the music of The Tender Land will have you thinking of home.
