Info for The Shining

World Premiere Recording: Horror Opera and Human Drama - Lyric Opera of Kansas City presents the world-premiere recording of Paul Moravec and Mark Campbell’s opera The Shining (2016). Based on the novel by Stephen King, this opera “elevates the tale from horror story to a human drama” (The Wall Street Journal) thanks to Moravec’s atmospheric, electrifying score and Campbell’s deft libretto. While staged performances have received critical and public acclaim, this engaging masterpiece can now be enjoyed as a recording for the first time.

“Stephen King’s novel ‘The Shining’ is naturally operatic: it sings. The story strikingly dramatizes three of the most basic elements of opera — love, death, and power.

Despite the paranormal activity and high-voltage action, it’s a human story about an ordinary family fighting to survive in terrifying circumstances. Mark integrates these essential elements and much more in a libretto of masterly structure and poetic elegance.” (Paul Moravec)

This opera by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Paul Moravec and Pulitzer Prize-winning librettist Mark Campbell (Silent Night, Lyric Opera, 2015; As One, Lyric Opera, 2018; The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, Lyric Opera, 2022) was met with critical acclaim. The all-star cast included Edward Parks and Kelly Kaduce. Making his Lyric Opera of Kansas City debut, Gerard Schwarz, the internationally renowned, highly respected, and award-winning (14 GRAMMY Awards and eight Emmy® Awards) American conductor, conducted the Kansas City Symphony. Baritone Aubrey Allicock, baritone Malcolm MacKenzie, and tenor Roger Honeywell also made their Lyric Opera debuts.
