Be among the first to hear this new opera! The Festival’s John Duffy Institute for New Opera seeks and supports the work of opera composer and librettist teams, providing mentors and shepherding new works to the stage. This spring, one of those carefully tended nestlings will fly, with the world premiere of Kept — the 19th-century story of a wild young woman, the lighthouse keeper she marries, and the dark secrets they share. Kept marks the first operatic collaboration between composer Kristin Kuster and poet Megan Levad, whose haunting score and vivid poetry illuminate the hearts of these ill-fated lovers.
