Blessed Be the Fruit … of the Resistance

In a dystopian future, women are forced into childbearing servitude by an extremist theocratic regime. Escape is nearly impossible—but Offred, a handmaid, is determined to find a way back to her child, no matter the cost.

Based on the landmark novel by Margaret Atwood, this intense operatic drama gives voice to a terrifying, fictional world.

Poul Ruders’ evocative score creates one of the most impactful operas of the late twentieth century, seen for the first time on the West Coast in a powerful new co-production with The Royal Danish Theatre.
