Jo in Mark Adamo's Little Women with Eugene Opera

http://eugeneopera.com/little-women/

Louisa May Alcott’s beloved story of the lives of the four March sisters — Meg, Jo, Beth, Amy — as they pass from childhood into womanhood is brilliantly brought to the stage through Adamo’s libretto and music.

While the novel on which it is based has long been a children’s favorite, this beautiful American work is most definitely not a children’s opera. It is suitable for children, but it speaks more directly to those who have experienced enough of life to appreciate its bittersweet message.
