American opera in general, and the Dallas Opera in particular, took a proud step forward Friday night at Fair Park, Music Hall with the world premiere of Thérèse Raquin, a new work by American composer Tobias Picker based on the Emile Zola novel of that name. Thérèse [Raquin] is a superbly crafted stage work. It is filled with compelling music, gripping drama, and imaginative staging and special effects, and it features an excellent cast.
