"The Golden Ass" is a modern setting of the Cupid and Psyche myth that focuses primarily on the relationship between Psyche and her vindictive mother-in-law, Venus, and both their relationships to society. Psyche is a dissociating young girl, a reluctant new bride, and  both the daughter of one man and wife of another who no longer value their partners as their partners begin to age. Society watches Psyches life unfold-- at times silently failing to speak on her behalf, while at other times, amplifying the malignant voices that surround her.

"The Golden Ass" was made possible by a grant from the American Composers Forum with funds provided by the Jerome Foundation and by a grant from the Twin Cities Opera Guild. This activity is also supported, in part, by the City of Saint Paul Cultural Sales Tax Revitalization Program. 113 thanks Nautilus Music-Theater, which is serving as fiscal agent for our fundraising activities.
