Wuthering Heights is based on Emily Brontë‘s gothic romance. Unable to bridge the chasm of social class, Heathcliff and Catherine are consumed by a love that can never be, and its legacy haunts the windswept Yorkshire moors. The music of the opera, composed by Hollywood legend Bernard Herrmann, underscores the novel’s passion, prejudice and mystery.
Bernard Herrmann was an Academy Award-winning American composer whose unforgettable collaborations include Psycho with Alfred Hitchcock, Citizen Kane with Orson Welles and Taxi Driver with Martin Scorsese. Minnesota Opera’s new production of his only opera celebrates the centennial of the composer’s birth and is the first major revival of this forgotten masterpiece since it was written in Minneapolis in 1951.
