The Source
Composer: Ted Hearne

Librettist: Mark Doten
Synopsis
In this opera based upon real events, Chelsea (formerly Bradley) Manning has many identities: adrift adolescent, emboldened whistle-blower, traitor to her country.  In this penetrating music-theater work, composer Ted Hearne dives into the media hysteria responsible for the many faces of the Army private who infamously leaked hundreds of thousands of classified documents to WikiLeaks.

An ever-shifting chorus of silent witnesses looms as four singers descend into the digital mire.  With computer-processed voices, they inhabit a fever-dream assemblage of Twitter feeds, cable news reports, chat transcripts, court testimony, and declassified military video, shining a light on the massive information machine in which Manning, and the U.S. has become ensnared.
