ABOUT THE OPERA
Set in 17th Century Restoration England during the reign of Kind Charles II, Prince of Players follows the story of Edward Kynaston, A Shakespearean actor famous for his performances of the female roles in the Bard's plays. When the King grants permission for women to appear onstage and forbids male actors from continuing to appear in female roles, Kynaston must relearn his entire craft or face the end of his career. Adapted from Jeffrey Hatcher's play A Compleat Female Stage Beauty and the subsequent 2004 film Stage Beauty, Prince of Players features words and music by Carlisle Floyd, a composer whose profound contribution to American opera has earned him the National Medal of Arts.
