Synopsis

Robert M. Beadell (1925-1994) modestly referred to himself as a "neoclassic eclectic composer" and an "obscure regional composer", yet these appellations do not begin to describe the importance of his contribution to twentieth century American music. The four music dramas which are the subject of this study are each very different in their size and scope, yet all bear the unmistakable stamp of Beadell's unique blend of music and drama. This book intends to show that the four music dramas are unique examples of American opera and should have the opportunity to be examined for their musicological and dramatic worth so that American opera directors and impresarios can decide if they should be included as definitive examples of American opera.
