Doubt

Doubt

Opera in 2 acts

libretto by John Patrick Shanley, after his play and film


  • Edition: performance material
  • Language: English

 
description
The story, taut and exacting, reflects the changes and dislocations of the times through four distinctly wrought, complex but absolutely recognizable characters, each grappling with their own uneasy feelings that come as the cultural and moral ground beneath them begins to give way. Gen­der politics, race relations and the role of the church; questions about personal responsibility, doubt, right and wrong are all brought to bear here – issues that are no less vital today than they were 45 years ago. So much in Doubt is about what is unsaid, what is continually running beneath the surface, which I see as an invitation to music. Douglas J. Cuomo
