Desert Rose characters.

A Modern Opera of True Love

Set against the backdrop of the southern California desert, Desert Rose tells the musical story of an oppressive society, a cast of morally decrepit characters and one man's struggle - against all odds - for true love.

In his search for Rose, MINER is overwhelmed by the ways and attitudes of The Wasteland and risks everything to become free from it - crossing The Line and passing the all-seeing High Tower.

Along the way, he meets up with a cynical beer CAN, two CACTUS bullies, three attractive yet wicked women (Dust, RUST and GLASS), five dirty CO-WORKERS and a violent CROWD.

Journey, struggle, death, love and redemption are all played out over the course of this 2 hour+ original musical theatre piece by L.HUNT.

Featuring the jazzy cocktail-lounge song "Driftwood (I Know the Rains Will Come)," the haunting and lovely "She Is Woman," the comedic bluegrass piece "Rubble Rabble (Voices w/o Sense)" and the 15-minute dance club masterpiece "Dust, Rust and Broken Glass."

Desert Rose is a surreal, one-of-a-kind sight and sound trip through the burning hot California desert.
