Synopsis
SHINING BROW concerns events that occurred between 1903 and 1914 during the great American architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s life. Wright’s determination to leave his wife and children, his relationship with Mamah Cheney, and the subsequent murders and conflagration at Taliesin, are all part of the historical record.
The opera opens as Wright meets Edwin and Mamah Cheney, who have commissioned him to design their new home. Wright and Mamah begin an affair, and both eventually obtain divorces and remarry each other. But Mamah fears that she will always be secondary to Wright’s obsession with his work – and with himself.
