The Summers Case Opera and Residency (Fall 2015)
Sonnet Swire

The Summers Case is a chamber opera in one act composed by Sonnet Swire, with a corresponding after-school residency that focuses on using opera to teach literary, critical thinking, self-awareness and problem solving skills to elementary aged children. The opera’s plot highlights issues related to the American foster care system—its crumbling infrastructure and racial and gender inequality. The residency will take place in the spring semester, followed by a full performance of the chamber opera at NEC in May.
