Music by Daniel Crozier
Libretto by Peter Krask

Premiered in 2014, this dramatic opera is based on the extraordinary life of the 17th century Mexican nun, Juana Inés de la Cruz, beloved poet, intellectual, and heroic champion of women’s freedom. Her choice of life in a convent over marriage protected her brilliant creative life until she was betrayed by ecclesiastical authorities. Celebrated as the “Phoenix of America,” Sor Juana is the first great literary figure in the Americas. The opera explores how an individual destiny tragically collides with the implacable forces of history and community.
