Based on the Apocryphal tale “Susannah and the Elders", the opera is set in the 1950's backwoods of Tennessee and centres around 18-year-old Susannah. The innocent Susannah faces hostility from the women in her community for her beauty and the attention it attracts from their husbands. She also catches the eye of newly-arrived Reverend Olin Blitch, whose influence will ultimately lead Susannah and this community to tragedy. 

Sixty years after its creation, the stunning music and moving story of Susannah continue to be incredibly poignant.
