Adam's Run

Music by Ruby Fulton
Libretto by Baynard Woods
Film by Rachel Dwiggins




Adam's Run, a new video opera by Ruby Fulton and Baynard Woods, is a dark comedy which takes place in a dystopic future world, amidst chaotic and extreme weather, where two television show hosts vie for the most viewed program in America. Despite their ideological differences, existentialist weather woman Julie Shore (Elisabeth Halliday) and environmentalist evangelist the Reverend Billy Noble (Robert Maril) fall in love. Television producer Dana Daring (Bonnie Lander) tells their story from a news perspective as a series of flashbacks.

Rhymes With Opera will be presenting screenings of the film throughout the United States in 2016-17.  See below for a list of confirmed screenings.  More screenings will be added to this list as they become available.
