The Splendid Splinter
COMPOSERStanley Silverman   
LIBRETTISTMark Campbell   
 
Synopsis
Inspired by a short story by John Updike, THE SPLENDID SPLINTER treats the moving story of baseball legend Ted Williams and his world. The piece is set against the backdrop of the Salvation Army (Williams' mother was a Salvation Army worker); World War II and the Korean conflict (a marine aviator in both wars, Williams overcame his negative reaction to his induction and became a war hero); the civil rights movement (his Hall of Fame acceptance speech shocked the nation), and, of course, baseball's canvas.
