March 14, 1997
Houston Grand Opera and The Banff Centre for the Arts
The opera is a mythical, rather than historical, portrayal of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. The first act, "The Happening," begins with the widowed Jackie's reentrance into society in 1968. The second act, "The Island" takes place in 1969, after Jackie and Aristotle Onassis' wedding. Through pastiche, collage, and the incorporation of popular cultural references as well as mythical leitmotifs, the opera reimagines the Jackie legend.
