Cincinnati Opera's newest release is a live recording of the world premiere production of Blind Injustice, with music by Scott Davenport Richards and libretto by David Cote. Developed in collaboration with the Ohio Innocence Project (OIP) and the Cincinnati-based ensemble Young Professionals Choral Collective, Blind Injustice explores the true stories of six individuals who were wrongfully imprisoned and ultimately freed by the OIP. The opera's narrative was drawn from the book Blind Injustice written by OIP director and formal federal prosecutor Mark Godsey, as well as personal interviews with the six exonerees. The Cincinnati Pops Orchestra's John Morris Russell conducts, with stage direction and dramaturgy by Robin Guarino. Hailed as "a powerful piece of music theater" by The Wall Street Journal and "a moving new work" by Opera News, Cincinnati Opera's world premiere production of Blind Injustice explores the true stories of six individuals who were tried, convicted, imprisoned, and ultimately freed by the Ohio Innocence Project. With a "rich soundscape" (NPR's All Things Considered) featuring elements of opera, pop, jazz, and blues, Blind Injustice interweaves the exonerees' individual stories to create a moving portrait of perseverance, grace, and forgiveness.
