Opera Fayetteville presents Dark Sisters, a musical exploration of one woman’s dangerous attempt to escape her life in the Fundamentalist Mormon (FLDS) church. Nico Muhly and Stephen Karam’s daring chamber opera tells the story of Eliza who—following a raid on the compound where she lives—finds herself grappling with issues of faith, family, and personal identity as well as the impact of these doubts on her relationships with her daughter and sister-wives—the only family she has ever known. Starring mezzo-soprano Margaret Newcomb, with stage direction by Andreas Hager and music direction by Cris Frisco.
