The Passion of Rita St. James
Composer:David Conte
Librettist:John Stirling Walker
Synopsis
Rita St. James is the headmistress of a school for wayward children, who works with certain allies within the school to overcome an evil influence that has infiltrated it. The conflict between these forces of good and evil centers around Napoleon Jones, a boy who is rather uniquely unwilling to submit to influences outside the impulses of his own heart. The effect of her selflessness--and Napoleon's--may seem unbelievable, but...what are fairy tales for?
