Opera Parallèle presents the American premiere of Anya17, a new opera by British composer Adam Gorb and librettist Ben Kaye. This opera addresses human trafficking and creates a poignant example of how the arts can be used to illuminate social issues. Anya17 is the story of a young, eastern European girl who is coerced into slavery with the promise of a better life in the West. Mr. Gorb’s innovative and powerful music explores the emotional strains of the tragic situation. Mr. Kaye’s naturalistic writing captures the true story and uplifts its content through his artistic mastery.
