Where's Dick?
Composer:Stewart Wallace
Librettist:Michael Korie
Synopsis
Inspired by detective fiction, film noir and vaudeville, Where's Dick? takes place over one long Christmas Eve in a crime-riddled metropolis. In a series of misadventures, the wannabe hero Junior marries and loses his new sweetheart Fate Spritely, has sex with an albino gorilla, is kidnapped and held at a corrupt orphanage and eventually becomes a criminal celebrity himself when he commits murder and has his ''face in the papers, name up in lights.'' The opera answers the question ''Where's Dick?'' with the anti-anthem ''There's a Little Dick in All of Us.''
