It’s WWII and a Nisei, 2nd generation Japanese American soldier has to overcome bigotry displayed against him and his family by the very country he is fighting to protect. This legacy unfolds in a ballet of love, strength and honor. 

Covenant Ballet Theatre annually pays tribute to World War II Japanese-American veterans with the free online viewing of The Nisei Project in honor of Veterans Day.

Bringing this story to the stage was extremely personal and emotional for me. I hope that all who view it experience and embrace the impact of this legacy. Being able to share this ballet is a way that I feel CBT can give back to the community.
