Synopsis
Why is Eartha Kitt Trying to Kill Me?: A Love Story is a new one-act opera, by composer Jeffrey Dennis Smith and librettist David Johnston, about a mysterious – and unlikely – murder suspect. A tour de force love story and mad scene all in one, a man shares his bizarre confession concerning the fate of a hot, young, art world star. Smith’s score blends elements of jazz with an edgy contemporary sound, creating an energy that propels the story forward.
