Hydrogen Jukebox (1990) is a compelling and provocative chamber opera. Named for and inspired by Ginsberg’s 1955 poem Howl, Hydrogen Jukebox is a melodrama that creates a portrait of the sensory overload and upheaval of America from the 1950s through the 1980s — covering the end of World War II through the thick of the Cold War.
