The Copper Queen
What brought them together across a century?
In 1910, Bisbee, Arizona, was a bustling mining town where fortunes rose and fell with the desert sun. At Bisbee’s heart was The Copper Queen Hotel, where Julia Lowell was forced to live in captivity in service to the men of the town. A century later, Addison Moore, a stranger to Bisbee, visits Room 315, the site of Julia’s tragic death where her ghost now famously roams. Was it destiny that ultimately brought these two women together across the generations? Find out in this powerful tale of human bondage, furtive romance, secret connections, and ultimately – redemption.
Composer Clint Borzoni comments: “With a harrowing legend, complex characters, and a diverse score, The Copper Queen will be a unique and unforgettable theatrical experience led by two strong female roles.” Librettist John de los Santos added: “This opera explores such a trapping through the journey of two brave women, one living, one deceased, and the spiritual upheaval that follows the convergence of their souls.”
