The opera by Daron Hagen and Paul Muldoon

A desert. An irrigation ditch. It is November of 1968. The ghastly red rotating lights of police cars. A handful of illegal immigrants are crawling across the border. ACT 1, SCENE 1 The main street of a tiny town straddling the US Mexico border. ACT 1, SCENE 2 As the neon signs and door are flown out, twin picket fences and front doors are flown in on opposite sides of the stage. ACT 1, SCENE 3 The houses and fences fly out from around Jake. ACT 1, SCENE 4 As Kane holds forth, the lights slowly rise and the stage gradually fills with onion pickers carrying long strings of red onions, which they place into baskets. ACT 2, SCENE 1 A riot of excitement at Jake and Emily's wedding feast, which takes place in the cantina. ACT 2, SCENE 2 The liminal zone.

ACT 2, SCENE 3 The reverse of the neon motel sign. Sergey Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet. La Cava - The Guide to Musical Theatre. Book by Dana Broccoli, based on her novel.
