Criseyde - A New Opera by Alice Shields

Criseyde is a new opera by Alice Shields, and is a new Middle English resetting of Geoffrey Chaucer's 'Troilus and Criseyde.' Known since Medieval times as a treacherous whore, the tragic beauty Criseyde is used by her family as a sexual trophy for political gain. In this intoxicating world of adulterous courtly love, a man secretly devotes himself to the will of his beloved. In Alice Shields' new opera, Criseyde now emerges as a romantic heroine, in this dramatic retelling — from a woman's perspective — of Chaucer's famous tale.
