Commissioned by American Lyric Theater
Lawrence Edelson, Artistic and General Director
Children play in a lovely garden outside the village. They discover that a giant owns the garden, who seeks to keep them out by building a wall. One of the children teaches the giant about accepting others, sharing resources, and how the walls we build actually make us more fearful.

Jake Heggie/Gene Scheer: Two Remain (Act I)

4 p.m.
Milton Granger: Bluebeard’s Waiting Room
Bluebeard is languishing in the ICU ward of a modern hospital. His next of kin has been notified, and so five of his wives show up, straight out of an earlier era, with costumes, attitudes, and life histories to match. Bluebeard awakens just long enough to ask for his wife. Which one does he mean? The answer surprises everyone…
