This contemporary tragedy brings to life the white-knuckle rush and devastating true stories of three climbers caught in a blizzard on Mt. Everest in 1996. As the first staged performance since the world premiere in Dallas, Everest promises to take you on an operatic journey unlike anything you’ve experienced before.
Together, Gene Scheer’s unrelenting libretto and composer Joby Talbot’s luminous and inventive score surrounds us with the insurmountable beauty of the Himalayas, the demons and dreams driving each climber upwards, and the undeniable danger that infuses every exhausted step with fear.
