A queer Gold Rush chamber opera
Good Country is a chamber opera about the historical figure Charley Parkhurst, a stagecoach driver in the California Gold Rush who was assigned female at birth and lived life as a man.
On a fateful night in 1861, a barmaid and a driver find out some catawomptiously strange things about each other. Will they keep each other’s secrets? Composer Keith Allegretti and librettist Cecelia Raker are one of the first teams ever to craft a lead role in contemporary opera specifically for a trans singer.
