World premiere recording of a dramatic opera with music by Daniel Crozier and libretto by Peter Krask.

This world premiere recording of With Blood, With Ink, a dramatic opera with music by Daniel Crozier and libretto by Peter Krask, was made in 2014 at the acclaimed Fort Worth Opera Festival. The opera is based on the extraordinary life of the 17th century Mexican nun, Juana Inés de la Cruz, beloved poet, intellectual, and heroic champion of women's freedom. Her choice of life in a convent over marriage protected her brilliant creative life until she was betrayed by ecclesiastical authorities. Celebrated as the “Phoenix of America,” Sor Juana is the first great literary figure in the Americas. Influenced by the operas of Verdi and Britten, With Blood, With Ink, explores how an individual destiny tragically collides with the implacable forces of history and community.

“…unquestionably worthy, with compelling multidimensional characters. The cast and creators have obviously put enormous living care into bringing Sor Juana’s largely un-known story to musical life.” (Opera News)
