Set in the late 1800ís The Three Hermits is a delightful story in which a Russian
Orthodox Bishop learns about the value of simple faith from three Hermits who live
on a small island. Humble prayer can work miracles all around us but our self-image
can obscure them from our vision; this story has a universal message about the Glory
of All Creation. Composer Stephen Paulus and librettist Michael Dennis Browne
have brought the story to the opera stage in a poignant and moving setting.
The Three Hermits isÖ
ē produced by the CSB/SJU Music Department with support from Saint Johnís Abbey.
