Rock Operas

Heffter has composed two rock operas, rich with unforgettable melodies, intense drama, and visual spectacle. Wildly entertaining and always completely surprising.


“incredible message and universal appeal….your grasp of the vocals, the book, the casting, the energy – all really hit material! ” Jon Deak (Founder of VYC at Lincoln Center/NY Philharmonic)

“What a soaring and beautiful work of art you created … what a dazzling evening  ” – Robert Lampell (Director The View ABC )

“What an accomplishment and the standing “O” was deserved”.  – Justin Kolb (Festival of the Voice, Phoenicia, NY)

“I was totally blown away…” – Betsy Hill (Rolling Stone)

allegorical coming of age story for the 21st century.  Two teens whose futures are in question become pawns in a fantastic tale where the power of temptation and ego battle the ravages of self sacrifice and love. 

Live performance clips, reviews, songs here

Atom & Eve ( original book and music by Lisa Heffter and Yvette Pecoraro) was performed in NYC as a Concert Reading at the Mary Lea Johnson Performing Arts Center. Powerful, melodic musical score, orchestrated tracks produced by Tony Coluccio at Global Media Music and Sound Designer Peter Fitzgerald of B’way’s Sound Associates sold out the theater and made for an electrifying evening


Permission was staged at The Triad Theater in NYC for a two week run, Director john Tedeschi took risks with a fantastically imaginative unique vision of “Permission” which, by the second week – without marketing, – sold out the house.

Heffter’s one-act rock opera about the struggles of a middle aged businessman who leaves all behind to discover unimaginable happiness, and endless wine.

Opposite: John Tedeschi
