Notes & Reviews:
This new American opera by Evan Mack had its genesis in a lecture in Cincinnati, Ohio, where Mack heard the story of the murdered nun, Dorothy Stang. His research led him to the Ohio Province of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur where he was given access to Stang's letters from 1969 until the week before her death. In five years time, the opera went from page to stage and won the Boston Metro Opera Main Stage Award. This recording is of the original New York City production. Evan Mack, a noted composer and pianist, has composed five musicals as well as numerous popular songs and classical works. He received his DMA from the University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music.
American Record Guide, January/February 2013
Despite these flaws, the music has integrity and the composer's heart is in the right place; his dramatic instincts are interesting and sound. (He has also composed five musicals, so he's no stranger to the theater.) The recording documents a staged performance with an attentive and appreciative audience of medium size. Libretto included.
Recording information: Jerome Robbins Theatre, Barynikov Arts Center.
