Based on Stephen King's spine-chilling novel, The Shining comes to the Ellie Caulkins stage as an opera, written by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Paul Moravec and librettist Mark Campbell. Hoping for a fresh start, the Torrance family takes up the care of Colorado's infamous Overlook Hotel. Little do they know that the isolation and the hotel's corrupting spirits will spark an inevitable descent into madness.
