A fictionalized account of Walt Disney’s final days. He is haunted by his own mortality, boundless ambition, and visionary empire. There is more to this icon than simply making dreams come true. With appearances by Abraham Lincoln, Andy Warhol, and Disney’s family, this whirlwind contemporary opera is a poetic and tragic story of the American Dream.
