A More Perfect Union
Composer:Victoria Bond
Librettist:Isaiah Sheffer
A More Perfect Union takes a satirical and allegorical look at the 1787 American Constitutional Convention and its impact on today's politics. It is a contemporary piece of music theater, reviving in part performance principles of the baroque opéra-ballet, such as the dramatic equality between singing and dancing actors.

A More Perfect Union currently consists of the following entrees:
Pre-amble: The Dis-United States of America, Fifty-five White Men, The Vow of Silence, The Making of the Presidency, Checks and Balances, The Combat Between "Liberty" and "Homeland Security," Finale: The Constitutional Promenade.
