Based on Louisa May Alcott's enduringly popular novel about the adventures of Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy in civil-war era New England, Mark Adamo's opera Little Women has been performed in more than 70 national and international engagements since its 1998 premiere by Houston Grand Opera and has achieved the status of an American classic. This recording, with a superb cast expertly directed for television, vividly brings to life an opera that The New Yorker hailed as 'A beautifully crafted work', brilliantly molding Alcott's tale into operatic form'.
