Serendipity and innovative collaboration turned The Bonesetter's Daughter, Amy Tan's best-selling novel, into a pioneering opera, which debuts in 2008 at the San Francisco Opera before touring the world. In their own words, captured by Ken Smith, Amy Tan and composer Stewart Wallace describe an incredible journey that took them to China, where local village traditions, as well as singers, musicians, and designers became an integral part of the creative process. This one-of-a-kind book includes the complete libretto for the opera, written by Amy Tan.
