Rootabaga Country

After a nationwide search, we are proud to announce that composer/librettist Rachel J. Peters has been chosen to compose Sarasota Youth Opera’s new commission—Rootabaga Country. Ms. Peters explains that the work has a “sincere message of tolerance and inclusiveness in a cultural climate where the simple act of growing up is more confusing than ever before.” This adaptation of Carl Sandburg’s 1922 Rootabaga Stories will have its world premiere by Sarasota Youth Opera in November 2017. Sponsored by the Les and Carol Brualdi Foundation
