MarymereIn 1888 an odd, quiet man named John Sargent moved from Maine to Wyoming with his business partner and his family. Within a few years he was penniless and alone: he was suspected of murdering both wife and partner, and his children had been removed from his care. He left.

Later John Sargent returned to Jackson’s Hole with a new bride. Edith enjoyed sunbathing nude, sitting in trees, and playing violin. Often all at once. This strange couple’s brief, troubled time in the shadow of the Teton mountains is the subject of the new chamber opera Marymere. The story centers on Edith Sargent and her struggle to live in an unfamiliar place with a sad, possibly dangerous man.
