Described by Opera News as an important addition to the American operatic canon, Sister Carrie takes as its themes the lure of money and social standing. Robert Aldridge s inventive score is richly melodic and unapologetically tonal. Herschel Garfein s libretto is based on Theodore Dreiser s groundbreaking 1900 novel, which depicts a small-town girl s tortuous path to fame and her lover s abject descent into despair. Aldridge and Garfein s Elmer Gantry was a two-time Grammy Award winner. Here, the lead roles are played by Mezzo-soprano Adriana Zabala, baritone Keith Phares, tenor Matt Morgan, and soprano Alisa Suzanne Jordheim.

I am incredibly grateful that the music has finally been release. Kudos as always to brave and persistent Naxos for making this their own and adding it to their careful distilled collection. I only hope this soul-stirring envisioning of an American classic returns and receives the much-wider claim and audience it is so rightly due.
At the very least, do yourself the great favor of purchasing this recording from Sister Carrier and allow yourself the entrancing journey of a superlative libretto and score so gorgeously and unforgettably intertwined that you will find yourself more than a little haunted by it.
