Frank Lloyd Wright looms as an iconic presence in American architecture, by virtue of his extraordinary creativity and larger-than-life ego. Daron Hagen’s Shining Brow reveals the inner landscape of Wright’s heart through a tragic love affair with the wife of a client. Shining Brow is at once intimate and universal.
Hailed as “one of the most important American operas of the past decade,” Shining Brow (1993) appears in a newly-revised version created by the composer especially for SummerFest.
