World Premiere
The Scarlet Letter

by Lori Laitman
May 7, 10, 13, 15, 2016

Ari Pelto, Conductor
Beth Greenberg, Director
Elizabeth Futral, Hester Prynne
Dominic Armstrong, Arthur Dimmesdale

Love finds a voice in our world premiere of The Scarlet Letter, a dramatic new adaptation of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s classic novel with libretto written by Colorado’s Poet Laureate David Mason. It’s a morality play of rigid judgment, heart-wrenching betrayal and redemptive love brought to life through stunning performances, dramatic set design and incredible music. Like Hester, you’ll discover that sin, while a failing, is essential to the human experience.

Sung in English with English and Spanish subtitles at every seat.

The Scarlet Letter is sponsored by Kenneth and Donna Barrow, Dave and Pam Duke, Noel and Thomas Congdon, National Endowment for the Arts and Opera America.

“To create one of the best-known characters from American literature will be a thrilling opportunity. And as she is delineated through the deft lyricism of Lori Laitman’s score…a sheer luxury!” - Elizabeth Futral, Soprano
