The Star Gatherer


The world premiere performance of the commissioned opera The Star Gatherer, commemorating the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Saint John’s Boys’ Choir, was presented at Saint John’s on October 20 and 21. With music by Stephen Paulus, libretto by Gene Scheer, the production’s design inspired by the painting of Jerome Tupa, OSB, and conducted by Paul Richards, OSB, the opera focuses on the youthful transition from boyhood to young adulthood through the boys’ awareness that they will be defined not by what they have but by what they give away. Three full-house performances superbly showcased the remarkable talents of the Boys’ Choir.
