Carlisle Floyd: Willie Stark

2008 NR

As idealistic American politician Willie Stark (Dennis Jesse) gains power and influence, he begins to blur the boundaries of right and wrong in order to achieve his goals -- and ultimately faces impeachment. Filmed in 2007, this Louisiana State University Opera production is based on Robert Penn Warren's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel All the King's Men and is inspired by the story of Louisiana Gov. Huey Long.
