“Michael Nyman’s rhapsodic score brings a heartbreaking immediacy to this story of a brilliant mind gone mysteriously awry,” said director David Schweizer, who has a long history with LBO. “The piece has everything - deeply felt emotions, humor and a haunting portrait of the fine line between mental illness and genius. Plus the intimacy of it, just three characters, affords a kind of behavioral detail that is not often seen on opera stages. I hope that audiences will really feel what these people are going through and what they discover.”
