  • 5:00 am
    Yoopera A Yoopera is what happens when you combine Yoopers and Oopera (the Finnish word for opera). The result: An exuberant, operatic, and inspirational celebration of local history and culture. This documentary tells the story of how the legacy of family stories and local history inspired the creation of a major opera and a widespread community celebration of heritage in the beautiful remote Upper Peninsula of Michigan (the U.P.).
    In 1906, the copper boom-town of Rockland, Michigan was the site of a labor strike by Finnish miners. The strike ended in violence and two of the Finnish strikers were shot and killed by Sheriff's deputies. No one was ever held accountable for these deaths and it had a chilling effect on the Finnish community in that town. Within the next few decades, the copper industry left the area and the story was mostly forgotten until it was passed on through the family of Alfred Laakso, a Finnish Rockland resident who witnessed those tragic events.
    Remarkably, through the transmission of family oral history and chance community conversations, the story evolved into an original opera by Finnish composer Jukka Linkola and librettist Jussi Tapola. It had sold-out premieres in both Finland and America and was webcast live to an audience of over 60,000 people in 28 countries. Yoopera! captures the resiliency and determination of an area and its people that is the true legacy of the immigrant experience. It shows us the power of knowing our family stories and what can happen when we share them.
