Where Elephants Weep:
The Cambodian American Opera Project partnership is bringing a cultural celebration to Lowell, Massachusetts this week. Lowell National Historical Park, in collaboration with a nascent network of organizations, is hosting the preview performances of this evolutionary opera, “Where Elephants Weep” in Lowell April 27-29. In blending the musical traditions of Cambodia and America, the audiences will have the opportunity to hear the ancient tempos while also absorbing the cadences of the future.

The factory bells dominated daily life in Lowell. They woke the workers at 4:30 a.m., called them into the mill at 4:50, rang them out for breakfast and back in, out and in for dinner, out again at 7 p.m. at the day's close. The whole city, it seemed, moved together and did the mills' bidding.
