The aria “Solana’s Song” begins the chamber opera When the Sun Comes Out composed by Leslie Uyeda with libretto by Rachel Rose. Set in an imaginary country called Fundamentalia, a country where violation of gender roles is punishable by death, the opera tells the story of a love affair between two women, Lilah – a wealthy married mother, and Solana – a gender outlaw and rebellious outsider. Solana is defiant and tough, tender and vulnerable, and filled with fear at the thought of allowing herself to be loved completely for the first time.
