Dolores Huerta is a legend in the fight for farm workers’ rights. In June of 1968, the movement lost a major ally and Dolores lost a friend when Senator Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated. The opera focuses on Dolores’ struggles, triumphs, and tragedies during some of the most iconic and charged weeks of American history.

Dolores is the first commission to come out of our project Aperture. Created during the height of COVID, Aperture members watched the development of Dolores online 2020-2021. We now invite you to an hour-long program featuring excerpts from the opera, in person.
