Paul's Case
Composer:Gregory Spears
Librettist:Gregory Spears & Kathryn WalatKathryn Walat
Synopsis
Willa Cather's short story Paul's Case chronicles the dissolution of a high school dandy living in sooty turn-of-the-century Pittsburgh. Paul, fleeing a mundane life, escapes to New York City's Waldorf Astoria to experience a week of cosmopolitan luxury. Unable to maintain his credibility, he devises a final act of shocking audacity that has confounded critics and readers alike.

Equal parts angry teenager, anti-capitalist, decadent aesthete and cold realist, Paul is also an American symbol of passive dissent in the tradition of Henry David Thoreau's Civil Disobedience, Melville's Bartleby the Scrivener, and Salinger's Catcher in the Rye.

Paul's Case is being developed in part with generous grants from the BMI Foundation, the Virgil Thomson Foundation and the "Composers & the Voice Circle of Friends".
