A true story of strength, determination, and the desire for connection
Journalist Jean-Dominique Bauby awakes from a coma unable to move or speak, “locked-in” like a diver at the bottom of the sea. But his mind is as brilliant as ever, and with the help of his assistant, he creates his memoir—an extraordinary story of strength and imagination. This world premiere production from the composer of Everest will capture your heart from the first note.
Grammy® Award winner Lucas Meachem returns to Dallas in a world premiere debut, leading a staggering cast of opera powerhouses. Sasha Cooke lends her vocal “lushness” (San Francisco Chronicle) to the striking true story, along with Andriana Chuchman’s “glorious sound.” (The Washington Post)
