Description

Full Length Musical

Drama

"Both the epic sweep and the sharp personal focus of Darrah Cloud's musical drama O Pioneers! mirror that of its source, Willa Cather's celebrated 1913 novel about life on the prairie at the end of the last century. O Pioneers! tells the story of Alexandra Bergson, who after her father's death takes charge of his Nebraska homestead. Through harvest, drought, and poverty, she holds her farm and family of three brothers together until they are ready to stand on their own. Cather wasn't the first writer to 'feminize the Western landscape,' but she remains one of the most enduring because Alexandra's story still has meaning. In taming the land, she neglects part of her emotional life,and only just before it's too late does Alexandra allow the woman in her to respond to the man she loves." (The Boston Herald) "O Pioneers! is a resounding musical and dramatic exploration of the immigrant experience on the American frontier...a poignant blend of stirring drama, powerful music and bittersweet romance." (The Stanford Weekly) Area staging. Approximate running time: 2 hours.
