Kevin Puts’ and Mark Campbell’s opera on The Manchurian Candidate will premiere at Minnesota Opera this March. Based on the novel by Richard Condon (which was subsequently made into two film versions) the opera is the second for Puts and Campbell, whose first opera Silent Night won the Pulitzer Prize in 2012 and has gone on to a successful life in repeat productions by several companies in the U.S. and Europe.
