What might Edgar Allan Poe write if he were alive today? This is the question American Lyric Theater asked of four gifted emerging writers for the opera stage. The Poe Project was commissioned by American Lyric Theater with support from the New York State Council on the Arts and the ASCAP Foundation. The double-bill is intended to be staged as a full-evening entertainment, but each opera can also be performed independently.
