Celebrity architect Frank Lloyd Wright made his mark on the design world with over 1,000 designed structures, many of which remain as preserved, highly regarded homes in Los Angeles.
Does cheating dismiss the work of this genius? Shining Brow explores the steamy affair between Wright and Mamah Borthwick Cheney, a high-spirited feminist who was, at the time, a client’s very attractive wife. While both parties left their spouses, the couple was under constant public ridicule until Cheney’s murder by fire. This opera from Daron Hagen takes a psychological look into one of America’s greatest minds.
Music by Daron Aric Hagen
