New Hazlett Theater will present Yan Pang’s “One-Log Bridge” on Dec. 7-8, 2023.
The opera centers on Yan, who comes to America to study music and is faced with unmet family expectations as well as racism directed at Asian Americans during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I want the audience to be empowered because they will see people like them to be able to make it and achieve the American dream. So at the spot they want to give up, they can look at this story. If you just keep pushing, maybe you can make it after all!” Pang said in an official press statement issued by the company.
“One-Log Bridge” will be directed by Rich Keitel and stars Amanda Sun, Mimi Konh, Braden Stroppel, Lulu James, April Daras, Ben Heavner, Ayden Freed, Julia Resnick, Eli Plummer, and Arden Adams.
