At the end of John Patrick Shanley’s multi-award winning play and film Doubt, the formidable Sister Aloysius cries, “Oh, Sister James. I have doubts! I have such doubts!” Those two short lines are laden with
pathos, emotion and high drama. It sounds operatic — and it will be.
Opera Fusion: New Works chose the drama of struggle for faith and power
for its inaugural workshop production, with libretto by Shanley and the
score by protean composer Douglas Cuomo.
