Per a press release, Director David Paul and his team have set the opera in 2019 America, “at what we feel is the most important juncture in young adult lives: the end of high school.” He continues in his director’s note: “For many of us, it is the first time that we are called upon to make judgments for ourselves that may impact our lives forever.”
