Ellen West
Composer:Ricky Ian Gordon
Librettist:Frank Bidart
Synopsis
Ellen West is a new chamber opera-theatre work that delves into the world of a hospitalized woman fighting her own body and mind. Based on a true story from the early 20th century of young woman suffering from anorexia and bulimia, this multi-dimensional work shows both her personal emotional roller-coaster and the clinical descriptions of a doctor’s attempts to save her.

Commissioned by Beth Morrison Projects, Opera Saratoga, The Ted & Mary Jo Shen Charitable Gift Fund and David and Kiki Gindler. The development of Ellen West was funded, in part, by an award from OPERA America’s Opera Fund: Repertoire Development Fund.
