About this title


Fishing families live by the values considered truly American: independence, risk taking and honest hard work. yet in the competition over uses of the sea and protection on its resources, fishermen often become victims rather than equal participants in the search for solutions.

Taking place in 16 "acts" on and beside the broad waters of North Carolina, Fish House Opera offers eloquent testimony on the issues facing commercial fishing families today. Here they share their delight in being fully engaged in a life well lived and their despair at seeing that way of life changed beyond their control. With all the comic and tragic elements of a classic opera, Fish House Opera will resonate with anyone seeking to comprehend the nature of American Life.
