In 1925, the state of Tennessee charged a school teacher named John Scopes with the crime of teaching evolution. The trial drew intense national publicity with its big-name lawyers, William Jennings Bryan and Clarence Darrow. Witness a reimagining of this epic showdown in the new opera, Scopes. Prix Fixe is a darkly comic monodrama that follows aging socialite Rebecca Manchester as she reflects on her life and love of opera and offers a tongue-in-cheek view of one woman’s determination to become a diva, no matter the cost.
