The Abbot of Drimock
Composer:Thea Musgrave
Librettist:Maurice Lindsay
Synopsis
With the cooperation of a witch-woman, Geills, the Abbot of Drimock feathers his nest by persuading the dying rich of the neighborhood to alter their wills in his favor. In a particularly complex case, however, he declines to reward Geills. Bess, whose husband, the local laird Sir William, is grievously ill, has borne a child, Maggie, by the Abbot. Sir William dies too soon, leaving his fortune to Maggie (whose plans to marry do not have her mother’s favor) and to the Edinburgh lepers. Determined not to be outdone, Bess and the Abbot hush up the death and prepare to stage a reenactment which will prevent the marriage and save the fortune. The plans go awry and with Geills’s help Maggie manages to turn everything to her advantage.
