A Chinese food deliveryman is hoping to rise and getting the shaft in this comic-rap-scrap-metal opera. Every day, every order of orange beef and General Tso the hopeful Guang delivers brings him closer to the American Dream… till it almost eludes him for good in a lurching Bronx elevator! Based on a true story, this funny, heartfelt new work promises fresh perspectives and a unique voice in this truly intriguing Nashville Opera premiere.
By Byron Au Yong / Libretto by Aaron Jafferis
