The Copper Queen Film
What brought them together across a century?
The production, originally slated to be performed in-theatre, was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and then reimagined as the company's first film project.
The Copper Queen Film features Arizona Opera’s first ever all-female director/conductor/designer team. It tells the dramatic story of Julia Lowell, a resident of The Copper Queen Hotel in Bisbee, Arizona in 1910, who 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. This riveting tale – told across the generations – is one of human bondage, furtive romance, secret connections, and ultimately – redemption.
Please note: This production contains adult themes and suggestive dialogue. Audience discretion is advised. Appropriate for ages 17+.
