A NEW AMERICAN OPERA
W
ORLD PREMIERE

Music & libretto by Matthew Aucoin
Directed by Diane Paulus
Produced by the American Repertory Theater

Inspired by the diary Walt Whitman kept as a nurse during the Civil War, this world premiere opera by the extraordinary young composer Matthew Aucoin explores how the individual experiences of soldiers are remembered and told. As Whitman listens to wounded veterans share their memories and messages, he forges a bond with a soldier who forces him to examine his own role as writer and poet. This new opera, featuring the Boston-based orchestra A Far Cry, an ensemble at the forefront of a dynamic new generation in classical music is produced in association with Music Theatre Group.
