The Discontented Housewife
Composer: James Nathaniel Holland
Librettist: James Nathaniel Holland
Premiere Date: Not available.
Description: "This is the interesting story of Margaret." So begins the screwball one-act chamber opera about an emotionally abused housewife, and the extent she goes to change the situation life has dealt her. Not even the pianist is allowed to sit by and idly accompany Margaret's journey into self-empowerment. Is it a battle of the sexes? Certainly not. It's more like power, domination, and the pure thrill of ordering others around. An entertaining opera perfect for starting opera companies and companies on bare-bones budget. Perfectly paired with other comedic one-acts.
Length: 00:30
Orchestration: fl, cl, hrn, pf, str
Musical Style: Farcical; dissonant with jazz elements
