About The Second Hurricane

In a storm-ravaged American town, a group of high school students offer their help to a nearby county before becoming stranded in the wake of a second hurricane. Through trial and tribulation, the teenagers must learn to work together if they’re going to survive.

Aaron Copland’s work was originally written for students when it premiered in New York in 1937. Eighty years on, The Second Hurricane makes its Victorian Opera debut as the company’s youth opera for 2017 as part of our Education Program. It will be performed by a cast of singers aged 15-25 together with students from Victorian Opera’s Youth Chorus Ensemble (VOYCE).

The opera will be directed by Victorian Opera Developing Artist Alastair Clark, with Angus Grant as musical director. Copland’s youth opera tells an important parable of the reaffirmation of community through surviving the darkness of disaster.
