Sister Carrie
Composer:Robert Aldridge
Librettist:Herschel Garfein
Synopsis

This world-premiere production and professional recording of Robert Aldridge and Herschel Garfein’s (Two-Time Grammy Award-winning creators of Elmer Gantry) new opera, Sister Carrie will take the stage of Uihlein Hall in the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts to launch our 83rd season of great opera.  Based on Theodore Dreiser’s classic novel (1900), the opera unveils the tortuous path to fame for a small town girl, as America industrialized and large segments of the rural populace flooded into an urban sea of humanity. Through rich melodies and brilliant libretto, Aldridge and Garfein have crafted an opera that brims and bustles with this monumental American moment.
