Shining Brow

World Premiere of Composer Daron Hagen's“Taliesin West Version” of Shining Brow


To hell with the conventional.

From 1903 to 1914, the early life of visionary American architect Frank Lloyd Wright was anything but conventional. In fact, it was tumultuous. Shining Brow, the translation of the Welsh “Taliesin,” was the name that Wright gave to his homes in Wisconsin and Arizona, and where his life took a unique turn. An affair with a client’s wife, complicated relationships, murders and a devastating fire at Taliesin drove Wright’s passion and determination to rebuild his life in this compelling and surprising tale.
