October 5, 1985 | Madison Opera
Tight-Rope
Composer:Chester Biscardi
Librettist:Henry Butler
Synopsis
A search for identity and the risk involved not only in the search, but in being true to the discovery. "I must live with my many selves," sings the Actor, who has spent the opera searching for the essence of poet Luther Dane, the man whose character he must portray in a film. "We walk a tight-rope," declares the Actor to Luther Dane in the opening scene. "One false step, one dishonest word, and we fall - we deserve to fall!" Dane has arranged his “death," but lives on; he has returned to help the Actor discover who he truly is.
