Puts and Campbell’s opera interweaves several narratives: the trial of Elizabeth Cree for the poisoning of her husband, John; a series of brutal murders detailed in John’s diary; and the spirited world of the English music hall. Historical luminaries like George Gissing, Den Leno, and Karl Marx all make appearances in this dark and thrilling world premiere.
