THE MIRACLE OF LIGHT is an original opera by composer Victoria Bond, directed by Kyle Dougan. First commissioned by the Young People’s Chorus of New York City which developed the opera in workshops, it was staged for the first time last December by Chamber Opera Chicago and has been newly adapted with a beautiful, timely message about love conquering hate. With the updated title “The Miracle of Light,” Chamber Opera Chicago’s second production of Victoria Bond’s opera takes on a new meaning. Set in a contemporary high school classroom, the opera tells the story of a boy who experiences his own personal miracle while learning about the historic miracle of Hanukkah. With its focus on bullying, the story has urgent relevance. The opera includes traditional Hanukkah songs as well as original music by Bond and lyrics and artwork by Susan L. Roth, New York Times best-selling children's author and illustrator.
