About Stonewall

Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the event, Iain Bell and Mark Campbell bring STONEWALL to the City Opera stage in this moving and explosive new American opera that captures the rage, grit, humor and, finally, hope of the LGBTQ community’s uprising in a Greenwich Village dance club on one hot night in June 1969.

The work follows a diverse group of characters whose lives collide at that pivotal moment in history when the police push them too far and they find the courage to fight back.

New York City Opera is a proud member of the Stonewall50 Consortium.
