Sweet Land is a poignant, lyrical celebration of land, love, and the American immigrant experience. In 1920 Inge Altenberg journeys to America to marry a bachelor farmer, sight unseen. But in the wake of WWI, Inge's German heritage turns her new neighbors against the match. Under cathedral skies, the determined young immigrant and her stoic farmer fight for their lives, facing their own misgivings and the harshness of an unforgiving land. A lyrical celebration of hard-won independence and a reflection of generations past, Sweet Land reminds us of who we are — and where we came from.

The Musical centers on the romance between black Jazz Orchestra leader Alexander Sweet and Eleanor Lowry (daughter of Minnesotan transportation tycoon Thomas Lowry). The Lowry family came to predominance in Minneapolis in the early 1900’s. The musical examines Eleanor’s ambitions to create an amusement park on Big Island in Lake Minnetonka in 1906. Eleanor eventually intends to leave her family to pursue a life with Sweet, but their relationship succumbs to societal pressure and the park is dismantled.
