Alice Tierney

In collaboration with Boston University, College of Fine Arts Opera Institute Music by: Melissa Dunphy Libretto by: Jaquleine Goldfinger Music Director: Allison Voth Stage Director: Claire Choquette Alice Tierney explores the mythic stories surrounding the death of the real-life 19th-Century "dissipated woman" Alice Tierney. Tierney was found hanging by her own petticoats on a fence in a seedy Philadelphia neighborhood early one morning in 1880. Despite suspicious circumstances, the death was ruled accidental and never investigated by police. But who was Alice? Can four grad students investigating the site discover the truth?
