About This Show

When Doodle was born, no one expected him to live. But he did. He can’t walk, so his older brother has to lug him around in a wheelbarrow. One day, a scarlet ibis appears in the "bleeding tree" behind the house. Their fate is intertwined with this exotic bird, which has flown far off course. The Scarlet Ibis is an opera about nature, family and survival. David Cote’s libretto tackles the cruelty and wonder of childhood, set to lyrical and evocative music by composer Stefan Weisman. Director Mallory Catlett stages a scene with music and a libretto reading.

The Scarlet Ibis will be presented on a shared bill with Science Fair. Both pieces are part of HERE Arts Center’s CULTUREMART 2012.
