Long Beach Opera presents...
The Perfect American (American Premiere)
Music by Philip Glass
Libretto by Rudy Wurlitzer
A fictionalized account of Walt Disney's final days. He is haunted by his own mortality and boundless ambition. There is more to this icon than simply making dreams come true. With appearances by Abraham Lincoln, Andy Warhol, and Disney's family, this whirlwind contemporary opera is a poetic and tragic story of the American Dream.
"...a great American opera that needs to be seen in L.A. and it is also the only great L.A. opera." - Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times
