This opera premiered in 1961 and garnered the 1962 Pulitzer Prize for Music. The Crucible is one of the most gripping works of American opera and is based on Arthur Miller’s play centered on the Salem witch trials. The story reveals how the line between truth and pretense becomes increasingly blurry when a community’s dogged determination to root out evil often becomes more dangerous than the evil itself. (
