Synopsis Act I, Scene 1: Kentucky, April 1856 The opera begins in total darkness, without any sense of location or time period. A large group of slaves gradually becomes visible, shackled and caged on a trading block. In a call-and-response song, they beg for deliverance from their suffering. The scene shifts to the lively town square in Richwood Station, Kentucky; it is April 1856. In preparation for an auction, members of slave families are separated from each other, so that they can be sold individually. The local townsfolk bid enthusiastically for these “picknies and mammies and breeders and bucks,” even though they consider them nothing more than personal burdens in need of civilizing. In the crowd of onlookers is a handsome man named Edward Gaines, a native of the region but absent for twenty years, accompanied by his daughter Caroline. He interrupts the auction when an “old estate rich in history” is brought to the block, asserting that this property, Maplewood Plantation, belonged to his deceased brother and therefore cannot be sold. As no one disputes the claim, Gaines acquires Maplewood. However, the self-assured Gaines is dismayed to learn that none of the townsfolk remembers him, only his well-respected older brother. The younger Gaines informs them that he has survived life’s challenges; once happily married, he now is a widower with a child to raise. He grandiosely proclaims that he will fill Maplewood with a multitude of possessions, and announces that he intends to retain all the plantation’s “goods and property” (i.e., its slaves). The enslaved who were waiting to be auctioned therefore are reunited with their families. While Gaines signs the ownership papers for Maplewood Plantation, the slaves celebrate with dance and music. The singing of Margaret Garner, an attractive young slave, captivates Gaines; after the crowd disperses, he takes her red scarf, which she had dropped accidentally. He nostalgically recalls his childhood, even though he had been forced to leave town under purportedly disreputable circumstances. He promises himself that this time the townsfolk will not forget him. Scene 2: Harvest time, about six months later Singing a wry, somewhat defiant work song, the slaves head back to their quarters after a day toiling in the fields. Cilla, the mother of Margaret’s husband, Robert, joins the couple for supper; their spirits are light-hearted while they prepare the evening meal. Yet when Margaret insists upon seeing her baby immediately after saying grace, Cilla, warm-hearted yet world-wise, cautions her against such an intense attachment to the child. Margaret persists, however, and sings a Lullaby to the baby while Robert and his mother eat dinner. Casey, the treacherous foreman at Maplewood Plantation, unexpectedly appears at the cabin and delivers shocking news: Robert is being sent away that night to another plantation. Margaret is to remain at Maplewood, but now will work in the plantation’s main house. When Casey tosses a fancy dress at Margaret, it is clear that Gaines expects sexual favors from her. Robert voices his anger, but Margaret reassures him of her faithfulness, and the two pledge their love. Scene 3: Maplewood Plantation, in the early summer of 1858 In the parlor at Maplewood Plantation, a reception is being held to celebrate the marriage of Caroline Gaines to George Hancock. The guests include the local townspeople, whom Edward is very eager to impress. However, a discussion at the party about the nature of love quickly develops into a heated disagreement between Edward and George. To break the tension, the newlyweds begin the reception’s traditional “first dance.” The guests quickly join in the waltz; ironically, only Gaines is without a partner. When the dance concludes, Gaines graciously toasts the couple. But then Caroline accidentally makes matters worse again by asking Margaret, now the house servant, for her opinions on love. The i


guests are outraged that a person of “quality” would ask a slave for her opinion. To show their disapproval of Gaines, and the social manners he seemingly allows at Maplewood, the haughty guests leave the party abruptly. Distressed by their rudeness, Gaines lashes out at Caroline, who ruined what he had hoped would be a proud moment; now, he claims, his neighbors have “more reason to gossip and despise” him. He dismisses her attempts to mollify him, yet watches wistfully as the newlyweds leave for their honeymoon. After the party, Gaines notices Margaret returning to clear the glasses, and lingers to observe her. Unaware of his presence, she continues to reflect upon the nature of love. Edward emerges from his hiding place and accosts her. She resists his advances and begins to struggle vigorously. But Edward is determined to have his way; he overpowers her and drags her forcibly from the parlor. Act II, Scene 1: Maplewood Plantation; Sunday, February 24, 1861, in the early evening Margaret, whose life has been sustained by her quest for freedom, begins to cry when Robert arrives and confirms that they are scheduled to leave in just three hours. He attempts to calm her anxieties, and Margaret is overwhelmed by love for her husband, a man of great moral courage and strength of character. Suddenly, Margaret notices that Cilla is not packing any of her own things. In spite of Margaret’s pleas to join them, Cilla proclaims that she is too old to begin a new life; her joy is simply to see her son’s family safe and living elsewhere. Although sympathetic with Margaret and Robert’s dreams for a free life, Cilla has made peace with her own, and sings of her reliance upon God. Footsteps are heard approaching, and Cilla and Margaret are terrified when Casey storms into the cabin. At the same time, Robert inadvertently walks into the trap when he returns with the children. Casey pulls out a pistol, and Robert impulsively attacks him. A violent struggle ensues, but Robert hesitates and cannot bring himself to shoot Casey. Yet when Casey calls Margaret a “black slut,” Robert strangles him to death. Cilla instantly understands that Robert’s action has doomed the family, and she and Margaret beg him to run, regardless of any personal danger they might be in. Cilla drags Casey’s body away; Robert and Margaret sing of their love and make plans to meet later. Scene 2: In the Free State of Ohio, March 1861 Three weeks have passed since Robert and Margaret successfully escaped from Maplewood, and crossed the frozen Ohio River on the Kentucky border to reach Cincinnati, a city in the “Free State” of Ohio. Now both outlaws, they live with their children in an underground shed, in hopes of avoiding recapture by their masters. Standing outside underneath a huge elm tree, Robert and Margaret discuss speculation about the country’s new President. Margaret shudders when she hears of Lincoln’s belief that the “Union is Sacred” and that “A House Divided Cannot Stand,” for she knows that means war is inevitable. Ever hopeful, and sharing Margaret’s dream for a better future, Robert asserts that freedom is nearly theirs–after all, they now live in a state whose name means “beautiful”! Here, their children will be able to grow up with dignity, and their own marriage will be respected as sacred. He will protect Margaret always, just as the elm tree always protects them. Only moments after Robert insists that they return to the shed because of the potential dangers facing them outside, Edward Gaines arrives, accompanied by slave catchers. He pounds on the shed door, promising that no harm will be done; he just wants to claim his property. Intoxicated, Gaines breaks down the shed door. An exchange of gunfire leaves neither man hurt, but the slave catchers tie up Robert. As he is being dragged outside, Gaines grabs Margaret. He laments that his bed is cold; he wants her to heat it up, just as she once did with hot coals. Breaking loose, Margaret recklessly plunges her bare hands into the ii


fire and grabs several pieces of coal; she lunges at Gaines, attempting to burn him. Gaines yells that she can pretend to be as crazy as she likes, he doesn’t care even if she mangles herself in the process. Margaret sees Robert outside, standing on a tall box underneath the elm tree. A noose has been placed around his neck, and he is surrounded by fiery torches planted in the ground. His cries of love to her are cut off when one of Gaines’s men kicks the box away. Determined that her children not be forced to endure a lifetime filled with slavery’s horrors, Margaret violently attacks and murders them: first slitting the throat of her daughter, then stabbing the younger one. Shocked by the bloody carnage, Gaines and his men surround Margaret. Intermezzo: In this moment “out of time,” total darkness envelops the stage. Gradually, the image of Margaret, alone, becomes visible. With defiant and noble grandeur, she embraces her life’s circumstances. Scene 3: In a Courtroom, in early April 1861 Margaret Garner sits in the middle of a courtroom, surrounded by militia officers. After capturing the runaway slave in Ohio, Edward Gaines had her transported back to Kentucky, where she now stands trial for the “theft and destruction” of the two dead children, considered his property. Local citizens fill the courtroom gallery, for they have followed the case with great interest and curiosity, and eagerly await Margaret’s sentencing by the three presiding judges. Caroline Gaines tries to rationalize with her father, and contends that Margaret stands wrongly accused: a mother who kills her children cannot be said to steal them. The proper charge, she insists, is murder–for Margaret killed human beings. The judges argue vehemently that Margaret’s case is one of “property” and the financial loss suffered by Gaines. Furthermore, Margaret has no legal right or claim to her children; slaves own nothing, least of all their master’s other slaves. The onlookers concur rowdily. Laughing cynically at Caroline’s perceived naiveté, the judges add that the veracity of their beliefs is confirmed and defended by the Bible. Caroline senses the hopelessness of the situation, and makes a personal appeal to her father on Margaret’s behalf. She pleads that a man of her father’s stature could influence the debate on slavery that is tearing apart the country, as well as their family. Margaret is not the only one guilty of a crime, she admonishes; everyone bears some of the blame for the discord. But Gaines merely reiterates that he has committed no crime; society and the law affirm his behavior. When the judges declare that Margaret is to be executed for theft, the onlookers express relief–for it confirms their deeply held conviction that they are superior to Margaret. Having sat quietly throughout the proceedings, Margaret suddenly rises from her chair, and glares at those in the courtroom. She states emphatically that indeed she is not like them; she is a unique individual over whom no one present has any power. Citing their full legal authority, the judges officially sentence Margaret to be executed by sunrise. They quickly recess to their chambers, and the condemned prisoner is led from the courtroom. Dismayed by the verdict, Caroline again begs her father to urge the court for clemency. Betraying no sign of emotion, although secretly disturbed by the trial, Edward coolly states that Margaret must suffer the consequences of what she has done. Caroline retorts that her father also must accept responsibility for his actions, then walks out. Left alone in the silent courtroom, Edward Gaines contemplates the course of his life, and wonders why he feels so troubled. His relationship with Caroline, once so close and loving, has deteriorated badly. Feeling under tremendous stress, Gaines realizes that he must choose between the love of his radical daughter and the traditional way of life to which he has always aspired. iii


Scene 4: In the town square of Richwood Station, Kentucky; the next morning, at dawn A group of local citizens–including the town authorities; Caroline and George; and Cilla, as well as some slaves transported from nearby plantations–processes somberly into the town square. Great sorrow fills the air, for they are accompanying Margaret Garner to her execution. All are sobered by the imminence of death. Seemingly, the only person not in the crowded plaza is Edward Gaines. The hangman brings forth the condemned prisoner, whose hands still are bandaged from the burns she suffered while defending herself against Gaines’s unwanted advances. Margaret is led up the scaffold steps. When she reaches the top of the platform, the hangman places a noose around her neck and positions her on the gallows’ raised platform (or stool). Edward Gaines runs in, excitedly waving a legal document–the judges have granted Margaret clemency! All will be well again, if Margaret admits and repents her crime; she simply will be returned to his custody. Although Caroline is overjoyed and relieved by this turn of events, as well as proud of her father’s decision to seek justice, Gaines’s fails to find any sign of approval or appreciation from his neighbors. The hangman leaves Margaret’s side, and walks over to accept the document from Edward for careful review. Upon hearing the judges’ decree, Cilla immediately offers words of gratitude and praise to her God. Margaret, still standing on the gallows, expresses her desire to live peacefully in a just world. Yet when the crowd is momentarily distracted, she seizes the opportunity for “freedom”–by deliberately kicking away the stool and hanging herself. The crowd is stunned by her suicide, yet a sense of awe permeates their sorrow. Caroline notices Margaret’s red scarf in her father’s front pocket; she removes it, then silently ascends the scaffold and reverently ties it around Margaret’s arm. Edward–as bewildered as anyone by Margaret’s deed – realizes that peace will always elude him. For though he made the “right” choice–to fight for Margaret’s freedom–he did it for the wrong reason. His actions were motivated by a desire to win his daughter’s respect, and not from any deeply held moral convictions. All of the onlookers–townspeople and slaves alike–express their need for repentance; Cilla proclaims her desire to join Margaret soon in heaven. As the curtain descends slowly, the crowd in the town square prays that Margaret’s final journey home be a peaceful one.

(The lights go up and illuminate the entire stage. The “elevated platform� on which the slaves stood at the beginning of the opera is revealed now to be a trading block situated in the middle of a busy town square in Kentucky. It is April 1856. The local townspeople are gathering eagerly for a slave auction. Also in the crowd is Edward Gaines, accompanied by his daughter Caroline.)

(In preparation for the auction, members of slave families are being separated from one another, grouped according to gender and age.)
