THE SCAFFOLDING

Genre: Musical
Music and Libretto by Martin Halpern

A Chamber Opera in Two Acts
Freely based on Henrik Ibsen's play The Master Builder

In a plot packed with psychological and moral ambiguities, a famous aging architect is confronted by a mysterious young woman out of his past. Their encounter builds through a series of emotional twists and turns to a climax in which he is rejuvenated, but at the cost of his life. Over all the action hovers the question: has she come to save him, to destroy him, or both at the same time?
