Voir Dire
Composer: Matthew Peterson
Librettist: Jason Zencka
Premiere Date: May 08, 2014
Description: The operatic action continues across the street from Bass Hall at McDavid Studio, with the 2017 Opera Unbound production of Voir Dire. Written by composer Matthew Peterson and librettist Jason Zenka, this explosive opera was selected as a winner of the 2014 FWOpera Frontiers showcase, and returns to the Festival stage this season for its regional premiere. Adapted from various court cases witnessed by the librettist during his time as a crime reporter, the opera takes place in a courtroom and plays out in a series of colorful vignettes that give audiences an insider’s look into the fascinating, hilarious and often insanely bizarre world of legal drama.
