Thérèse, trapped in an unhappy marriage, escapes into a stormy affair with her husband’s best friend. Their newfound passion compels the young lovers to commit a crime that will haunt them forever. Picker’s lavish and riveting score provides the suspenseful underpinning for this deadly ménage à trois. Based on Emile Zola’s scandalous novel it is “a meaningful opera infused with moments of searing reflection and luxurious sensuality." (Opera Now)
