Shining Brow centers around the eleven tumultuous years, from 1903 to 1914, in the young career of the American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The episodes include the Cliff Dwellers Club in Chicago with Louis Sullivan (Wright's former mentor), a construction site in Oak Park, Illinois, Berlin, Germany, and finally to Taliesin where many of the most tragic events of Wright's life are played out.
Shining Brow was commissioned by Madison Opera, a division of the Madison Civic Music Association Inc., Madison, Wisconsin, who had permission from the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation to produce an opera based on Mr. Wright's life. It was premiered in the spring of 1993 in Madison.
"Shining Brow was a daring adventure on the part of several bright young talents. Paul Muldoon, a noted Irish poet, wrote the libretto. Stephen Wadsworth, who collaborated with Leonard Bernstein on A Quiet Place and headed the SKylight Theater in Milwaukee from 184 to 1991, directed. ... The entire enterprise exuded intelligence. ... overall, the work is effective and stimulating. Mr. Hagen has a gift for the big tune, and he serves up some beauties in the choruses, evoking the blues and a Colonial Hymn." - James R. Oestrich, The New York Times
"Shining Brow offered further evidence that the salvation of the new American opera will come not necessarily from the big East Coast companies, but from enterprising regional theaters like Madison's. ... It is an opera any major opera company could present with pride." - John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune.
