Description
Beverly Wolff created the title role in this 1968 opera about the ax-wielding reformer who spearheaded Prohibition. Libretto included.

"Wolff was one of a golden generation of American singers who dominated the New York City Opera roster during the general directorship of Julius Rudel. Her combination of stylish, intelligent singing and 'big brass sound,' as she termed it, was a key element in some of the company's most celebrated productions."—Opera News

"Carry Nation is virtually a 19th-century opera improbably written in the 1960s. With a reforming woman as heroine, it has some connections with Thomson's Mother of Us All, based on the suffragette campaigner Susan B. Anthony…. The opera's prologue shows Carry and her girls at work but the two acts which follow are set in her youth and deal with trials of her unhappy marriage. The story has theatrical moments and plenty of colour, especially in crowd scenes. Moore's folksy style copes well with barn dances, ragtime (of sorts) and barbershop as well as the mainstream materials of French and Italian opera."—Gramophone
