The Scarlet Ibis
About The Scarlet Ibis
The Scarlet Ibis tells the story of a young boy named Doodle and his relationship with his Brother in North Carolina against the backdrop of World War I. Composer Stefan Weisman and librettist David Cote adapted the magical 1960 short story by James Hurst for this new opera’s critically acclaimed first showing at 2015’s Prototype Festival with Beth Morrison Project. Chicago stage and movement director Elizabeth Margolius joins conductor and contemporary music expert David Hanlon to bring this story to life.
