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"marvellous 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" The New York Times.
