Politics, intrigue, and conspiracy. Pulitzer Prize-winning creators Kevin Puts and Mark Campbell’s acclaimed adaptation of the Richard Condon novel brings a riveting tale to operatic life at the Long Center to open our 30th Anniversary Season.

Sergeant Raymond Shaw is the brainwashed, unknowing accomplice of a secret plot to overthrow the US government through its presidential elections. Only Captain Ben Marco — his fellow POW — stands between Shaw and the destiny crafted for him by a group of dark collaborators.

Semi-staged direction by Alison Moritz and projection design by Greg Emetaz will create a powerful and imaginative dramatization of the paranoiac tale, which will take place with the Austin Opera Orchestra on stage, less than two months before the 2016 Presidential Elections.
