Acclaimed Opera The Rosenbergs
It's 1953 in Cold War-era USA, and Ethel and Julius Rosenberg have been accused of atomic espionage and sentenced to death. The most famous spy case of the 20th century, these events led into the House Committee on Un-American Activities Senate hearings, as the Rosenbergs' love affair broke out of all bounds. Recognized as Denmark's Best Opera of 2015, this tragic love story is adapted from the Rosenbergs' letters from jail. As seen through the lens of the McCarthy witch hunts, echoes of which can still be heard today, it begs the question to all of us: "Would you die for love?" Enjoy this North American premiere of The Rosenbergs, presented in collaboration with the Brandeis University Department of Theatre Arts, at Boston Playwrights' Theatre.
