The world premiere of Thomas Pasatieri’s The Martyrs, with a libretto by Daphne Malfitano, stars the world-renowned Catherine Malfitano as Marianne and Zeffin Quinn Hollis as Percy. The opera explores the stories of two quintessentially American antiheroes. They each seek justice, but are vilified by their rural societies, forcing them to live—or die—as modern-day martyrs.
