Opera in 3 Acts. Set in the sixteenth century in the French Pyrenees, The Wife of Martin Guerre deals with the question of false identity.

Martin Guerre has left home because of an argument with his father and has taken service as a soldier. As the years pass, the memory of Martin becomes dim in his wife's mind. Finally, a man claiming to be Martin Guerre returns home and is accepted by his family and friends, even though doubts remain in the mind of his wife, Bertrande.Three years after his return, Bertrande takes legal action and formally accuses the new Martin of being an imposter. The case comes to trial and the man is condemned to be hanged. An appeal is granted and it is gradually revealed, with chilling force, who is the real Martin Guerre.

A full-length lyric opera of dramatic tension in a colorful French provincial setting. Duration: ~ 2 Hours, 15 Minutes
