Paul's Case is a beautiful and searing opera based on the short story of the same name by Willa Cather.

Paul, a high school boy, feels trapped in Pittsburgh, where his controlling father wants him to enter the business world as a cash boy and work his way up. He runs away to New York and puts himself up in style, but his freedom is short-lived. Music by Gregory Spears, libretto by Gregory Spears and Kathryn Wallat.  Directed by Kevin Newbury, conducted by Robert Wood.

UrbanArias is a new opera company dedicated to producing short contemporary operas. Their mission is to expose DC-area audiences to engaging, accessible and entertaining operas, and to provide a friendly venue at which both established and emerging composers can present their shorter works.
