Second Stage Project: Paul's Case
Willa Cather's 1905 story of a Pittsburgh boy whose social aspirations drive him to escape to New York City is now a singular, haunting opera. After a short time living the high life at the Waldorf-Astoria, Paul's longings are crushed in a wrenching finale. The premiere of Paul's Case (April 2013) received rave reviews. Daniel Curran heads the cast as Paul.
