"If I Were You" by Jake Heggie and Gene Scheer

The celebrated American opera team of composer Jake Heggie and librettist Gene Scheer ("It's A Wonderful Life," "Moby-Dick," "Three Decembers") returns to CU NOW to develop "If I Were You," a contemporary Faustian tale of identity, body swapping, love, death and deals with the devil.
