The Ghosts of Gatsby
Composer:Evan Mack
Librettist:Joshua McGuire
Synopsis

A tale of marriage and madness.

Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald are in the French Riviera, 1924. Scott, obsessed by work on The Great Gatsby, is jealous of Zelda's extramarital affair, while Zelda is smothered by the alcoholic Scott. In a fit of rage, Scott locks Zelda in a bedroom. She has visions of her younger and older selves. As the argument with Scott resumes and intensifies, Scott strikes Zelda and she attempts to dismiss the apparitions as unreal; but the oldest Zelda dismisses her. Zelda wakes; the entire scene has been a dream on her deathbed, locked in a burning insane asylum.
