Floyd: Susannah



This heartbreaking retelling of the biblical tale of Susannah and the Elders is considered the quintessential American opera.

Aug 12, 2022 - Aug 20, 2022. Starting: 07:30 PM

Set in the Appalachian Mountains, Susannah innocently incites the lust of the town elders, who demand their minister force her to repent sins for which she is not guilty. Carlisle Floyd's use of idiomatic American folk song throughout the score captures the essence of Susannah's plight and creates effective melodrama and lyrical storytelling solidifying Floyd's place in the canon of great American composers. Wolf Trap Opera premiere.
