Howards End, America

In February 2019, Earplay and RealOpera will present the world premiere of a major new chamber opera, Howards End, America by composer Allen Shearer and librettist Claudia Stevens. Howards End, America transports the action of E. M. Forster's great novel Howards End to 1950s Boston.

The Earplay/RealOpera co-production of Howards End, America is Earplay's first opera production. The fully staged production will feature leading vocal artists, including Nikki Einfeld and Phil Skinner, and the Earplayers will form the core of a thirteen-piece orchestra.

The West Edge Opera Snapshot series previewed part of Howards End, America in 2017. Click here to watch a short video of composer Shearer and librettist Stevens discussing their opera.
