More Info:

Lyric Opera of Kansas City presents the world-premiere recording of Paul Moravec and Mark Campbell's opera The Shining (2016). Based on the novel by Stephen King, this opera "elevates the tale from horror story to a human drama" (Wall Street Journal) thanks to Moravec's atmospheric, electrifying score and Campbell's deft libretto. While staged performances have received critical and public acclaim, this engaging masterpiece can now be enjoyed as a recording for the first time. The Kansas City Symphony and Lyric Opera of Kansas City Chorus are led by the eminent conductor Gerard Schwarz and join forces with an excellent cast of soloists. The main role of Jack Torrance is interpreted by Edward Parks, who was part of the Grammy-winning recording of Mason Bate's The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, released on Pentatone in 2018.
