Event Details

Madeline Lee tells the story of B24 bomber Lady Be Good and her nineman crew who disappeared without a trace over Libya, North Africa in 1943 following their first and only combat mission. Taking elements of the story as portrayed in the  tele-movie Sole Survivor, Madeline Lee explores how memory, isolation and identity are affected by traumatic events. The opera concentrates on the relationship between the dead crew and the Major, who heads the search and rescue party sent to survey the wreck. The revelation of their intertwined fate culminates in a dramatic re-enactment of the Madeline Lee’s final bombing mission over the Mediterranean and the recovery by the Major of his suppressed memories of the event.
