About the Opera

 

The Cleveland premiere of this new one-act opera by Evan Mack and Joshua McGuire. 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 drinks himself into a stupor. 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.
