Susan Graham stars in Regina at Opera Theatre of St. Louis

Susan Graham makes her title role debut in Marc Blitzstein’s Regina at the Opera Theatre of Saint Louis (May 26–June 24), in a production that marks the 30th anniversary of her company and leading-role debuts.

Regina makes a strong statement against financial greed, depicting struggles of class, gender, and morality within one Southern family in the aftermath of Reconstruction. Adapted from Lillian Hellman’s groundbreaking play The Little Foxes, Regina is as demanding dramatically as musically; its scheming but fascinating heroine has been portrayed by such icons of stage and screen as Tallulah Bankhead, Bette Davis, and Elizabeth Taylor.

Graham is joined by veteran bass-baritone James Morris and Broadway and television actor Ron Raines as Regina’s two brothers. Opera Theatre of St. Louis’ production will be directed by Artistic Director James Robinson, with Stephen Lord, in his first engagement as Music Director Emeritus, on the podium.
