John Adams: A Distant Love

Victoria Tralongo, Abigail Adams
Robert Aaron Taylor, John Adams
Chelsea Opera String Quartet
Samuel McCoy, music director/principal conductor
Lynne Hayden-Findlay, stage director/costume design

Supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, the performance takes place in The Carriage House at the Adams National Historical Park. The work is based on letters exchanged between John Adams and his wife, Abigail, with whom he shared his aspirations, accomplishments and frustrations as he worked to secure financial support from the Dutch for the new nation emerging from a revolution. Abigail, his “dearest friend”, was not demure about expressing her feelings on things political, economic or domestic. She was an early feminist (“Don’t forget the women,” she wrote to John while the founding fathers were drafting the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia), abolitionist, mother and farm manager during John’s long absences.
