Love surrenders to lust in this scandalous tale of primal appetites, embraced by a lavish, sensual score that mirrors the lovers’ turbulent affair. Thérése, bound by an unhappy marriage, falls deeply in love with an old friend, but romance turns to madness when they commit a crime that will haunt them forever. Join us for a deadly ménage a trois in what Opera Now calls “a meaningful opera infused with moments of searing reflection and luxurious sensuality."
