Inheritance: A Chamber Opera
The creative team for Inheritance continue to develop the libretto, score, and production towards our October 2018 premier at University of San Diego.
Inheritance is a chamber opera designed for a lead soprano plus three female voices and a chamber ensemble. This opera’s production will be housed within a multimedia environment that examines gun culture in America through the lens of Sarah Winchester’s life. According to popular belief, Winchester was an eccentric widow self-imprisoned in her labyrinth-like home and seeking refuge from the spirits of those killed by Winchester rifles. The legend surrounding her life, impossible to extract from her actual history, is indicative of America’s inability to separate fact and fiction within gun-debate discourse. Although the libretto for Inheritance is anchored in Winchester’s biography, this work explores her life and home as a metaphor for America’s violent legacy and deeply complex relationship with guns.
A collaboration between composer Lei Liang/artist Ligia Bouton/writer Matt Donovan/singer Susan Naruki/Director Acushla Bastible, this project will premier at UC San Diego in October 2018.
