Fall River, Massachusetts has never forgotten the infamous crime. When Lizzie Borden was arrested for the brutal murder of her father and stepmother, the New England village became the focus of the nation. The jurors at Lizzie’s trial did not deliberate long, but  in the court of public opinion, debate still rages about her guilt or innocence.

BLO has commissioned a new chamber version in seven scenes of Jack Beeson’s score, which reveals the disturbing power and undeniable theatricality of his opera. Christopher Alden directs this world premiere with Heather Johnson as Lizzie and Caroline Worra as her stepmother. The Boston Globe has called the Opera Annex an “increasingly essential series” and subscribers receive first access to tickets.
