Based on the play cycle by Eugene O’Neill, this mythic tale is set in Massachusetts shortly after the Civil War. Beneath the veneer of the prim and proper Mannon family are seething passions of bitterness, infidelity, incest, and even murder. The magnificently powerful music, written by Fort Lauderdale resident Marvin David Levy, is completely original. Conductor Leonard Bernstein called Marvin David Levy’s opera “”a tremendous achievement, a remarkable work!”” Come see why this opera received a 25-minute standing ovation on opening night at the Metropolitan Opera in 1967.
