The Butterfly Lovers of Gold Mountain
Journey from China to Gold Rush Era California to celebrate the Solstice
This year California Revels follows the journey of a young Chinese opera singer from China to Gold Rush-era California. This incredible moment in history ushers in a new age of movement, international trade and multicultural life in our golden state of California. This is the advent of California Statehood, the railroad, and the dawn of Pan-Pacific movement and trade. You will be treated to Chinese music and opera as seen through the eyes of Americans, and have a chance to view Californians - native and new - through the eyes of one of the world's most ancient, enduring cultures. Myth, legend and story from two continents interweave, spinning the golden California of memory and promise.
