“Continuously gripping, without a wasted note or word” (The Wall Street Journal), this powerhouse drama receives its first new full-scale staging since its 1996 world premiere production.
Inspired by a compelling true story from a mill town in 19th century New England, Emmeline’s heart-wrenching saga echoes the age-old Oedipus legend. Continuing OTSL’s commitment to great American opera, the production is created by the same team that brought St. Louis the unforgettable world premiere of Champion in 2013.
Conducted by George Manahan. Directed by James Robinson. Featuring Joyce El-Kohoury, Meredith Arwady, John Irvin, and Wayne Tigges.
Opening night will be held on June 13 at 8:00 pm. Other performances will be held on June 17 at 8:00 pm, June 19 at 8:00 pm, June 21 at 7:00 pm, June 25 at 8:00 pm, and June 27 at 1:00 pm.
