The Shower, composed by Scott Bradley Joiner
World Premiere: The Vienna Summer Music Festival, 2019
Baby showers are meant to be fun and exciting affairs where the guests shower the mother-to-be with gifts and well wishes. In this new one act opera, the shower is for a hopeful woman, named Heidi, who is eagerly expecting her first child. But as the games are played and the cocktails refilled, the party takes a chaotic turn as friendships are tested and secrets are revealed.
