Make Your Connection
Eight complete strangers find they have more in common than they think. Stranded overnight at an airport, they meet a refugee forced to call the terminal his home and soon realize they need each other to get to their destinations. Inspired by a true story, Jonathan Dove’s Flight is a touching and deeply human comedy all about what it means to make a real connection.
Performed in English with English captions projected above the stage.
Approximately two hours and 20 minutes with one intermission.
This production contains mature content and scenes of sexual intimacy, theatrical haze, and strobe lighting effects.
Dawn: and the Controller sits in her tower. People start to arrive at the airport…
Inspired by the haunting tale of Mehran Nasseri, composer Jonathan Dove discovered that people felt the same magnetic pull to this story as he did. Dove’s music has filled opera houses with delighted audiences of all ages on all five continents.
