Emmeline – Manhattan School of Music
The Manhattan School of Music Opera Theater presents Tobias Picker's Emmeline, directed by Thaddeus Strassberger and conducted by George Manahan on April 25-28. Based on the novel by Judith Rossner with a libretto by J.D. McClatchy, Emmeline is an American retelling of the Oedipus myth from the mother’s viewpoint. While the story originally takes place in the mid-19th century, in this production, Emmeline's timeless tale has been brought into the contemporary realm.
