The Guests, a Middle East Tale Of Peace

Live Performance in Oakland, CA of a new music drama created by Opera Piccola. Text by Shahrnush Parsipur; Music by Scott Hill. Based on an ancient Persian tale, “The Uninvited Guests,” which tells of a lonely old woman who is visited one rainy night by 7 unexpected guests. She welcomes them all into her tiny house, a metaphor for welcoming each other on our crowded Earth.
