Nathaniel Hawthorne, 1804-1864


versions of Hawthorne's works

scores, librettos, and vocal recordings

"I saw in an American newspaper yeterday, that an opera, still unfinished, had been written on the story of 'The Scarlet Letter,' and that several scenes of it had been performed successfully in New York. I should think it might possibly succeed as an opera, though it would certainly fail as a play."

--from The English Note-Books, Sept. 17, 1855
