Dayton Opera is thrilled to announce a world-premiere opera created and presented by a team of four of the most talented individuals in the today’s opera world, all of whom just happen to be women! The story was sparked as librettist Andrea Fellows Fineberg and stage director Kathleen Clawson uncovered a unique gem in Dayton’s past right in the middle of Dayton’s Woodlawn Cemetery. FINDING WRIGHT is the story of human connection and emotion, centering on the life of Katharine Wright, sister of two of the most famous Wrights of Dayton, and in fact, the world: brothers of flight Orville and Wilbur Wright. With music by award-winning composer Laura Kaminsky, performed by the Dayton Philharmonic under the direction of conductor Susanne Sheston, FINDING WRIGHT is the first ever full-length opera commissioned for and presented by Dayton Opera.
