Robert Aldridge: Elmer Gantry
Released: July 1, 2011
Catalog Num: 8.669032-33
Set just before World War I, Sinclair Lewis's incendiary novel Elmer Gantry tells a story of old-time religion, illicit romance and revenge. Robert Aldridge and Herschel Garfein's operatic adaptation is a ‘marvelous amalgam of toe-tapping accessibility' (Opera News) full of hymns, gospel songs, marches and dance, evoking the period in a score which echoes Gershwin and Copland. This all-American production combines a first-rate cast of singers and a world-class orchestra for ‘an intoxicating experience' (New York Times).
