Description
This story captures the everyday happenings of rural America in all of its glories and shortcomings. Like a rill, a term for a small stream or brook, the opera intermittently visits the lives of its rural inhabitants in a non-linear, fluid fashion. Such glimpses of small town life here include woman discussing home decoration, schoolboys gossiping about fellow students, farmers describing quality hay, and other trivial scenes that add up to provide an overall picture of country life.
