Notes:
An opera about the life and work of Ada Lovelace (1815 – 1852). In an era where women were rarely allowed to study science and mathematics, Ada was a troubled scientific prodigy and pioneer in computing. The daughter of a tempestuous marriage between the infamous poet Lord Byron and Anabella Milbanke, Ada’s story represents the conflicts between emotion and reason, desire and obligation, and a woman’s ambition to be more than society wanted her to be.   In progress as of September 2021
