“Susannah’s a marvel too often overlooked.” - SF Gate

“” -

In the backwoods of Tennessee, a beautiful young woman is accused of indecent behavior after she is discovered bathing naked in a stream. Will the charismatic traveling preacher who sets his sights on her soul be her salvation, or her downfall? Carlisle Floyd’s all-American score “is unabashedly neo-Romantic,” said The New York Times. The radiant Patricia Racette sings the title role, with Brandon Jovanovich as her brother and Raymond Aceto as the hell-raising itinerant preacher.

Recorded in HD, and sung in English with English subtitles.
