Part One is NORA, IN THE GREAT OUTDOORS, with a libretto by playwright Will Eno (2005 Pulitzer Prize finalist in drama for Thom Pain (based on nothing.)) This moving and dramatic opera deals with the repercussions of Nora's final door slam in Ibsen's A DOLL'S HOUSE. We see her confront her past and very uncertain future in a moving soliloquy that takes place immediately after she leaves her family.
Part Two is ALICE IN THE TIME OF THE JABBERWOCK, with a libretto by novelist Robert Coover (The Public Burning, Noir.) In this dark comedy, Alice has never been able to escape Wonderland. Once a child sensation and a crowned queen, she is now going through menopause while becoming increasingly disenchanted with her crazy companions.
