Later the Same Evening
In its professional premiere at Glimmerglass, this one-act opera imagines the lives of the figures in five paintings by American icon Edward Hopper, weaving a narrative that connects them – both tangentially and directly – on a single night in New York City in 1932. Originally commissioned by the National Gallery of Art, the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center and the University of Maryland, the opera was written by Pulitzer Prize-nominated composer John Musto and award-winning librettist Mark Campbell, who previously collaborated on the highly successful comic opera, Volpone, for Wolf Trap Opera.
