A chamber opera

based on the life of Sarah Winchester

Libretto by Matt Donovan

Description
By investigating a woman trapped in circumstances she inherited, by portraying the ways in which Sarah Winchester is reduced to perpetual acts of ineffectual penance, by interrogating a far-reaching history that extends from 19th-century massacres of Native Americans to contemporary school shootings, Inheritance hopes to raise questions about complicity, atonement and gun violence in America.
