Shining Brow
Composer: Daron Aric Hagen

Librettist: Paul Muldoon
Synopsis
Shining Brow, the translation of the Welsh Taliesin, is the name Wright gave his homes in Wisconsin and Arizona. The period of time covered in Shining Brow includes some of the most tumultuous years of Wright's life, from 1903 to 1914. During the work, the scenes shift from the Cliff Dweller's Club in Chicago, where Wright's discarded mentor, Louis Sullivan, appears, to a construction site in Oak Park, to Berlin, and then to Taliesin, where some of the most tragic events of Wright's life occur. The work portrays Wright's relationship with a client, Mamah Cheney, who leaves her husband, Edwin, for the architect. Their affair is further complicated by the fact that Catherine, Wright's wife, refuses to grant him a divorce. Wright visits Sullivan in Chicago, and it is here that he learns that Taliesin has been destroyed by fire. Mamah has been killed, along with six other victims -- three were hatcheted to death by the madman who set the house on fire, Wright's chef, Julian Carleton. The chef is soon found -- his throat burned from drinking hydrochloric acid. As the opera closes, Wright imagines rebuilding Taliesin in Mamah's memory.
