In this photo taken Oct. 1, 2012 and provided by the San Francisco Opera, Jay Hunter Morris, portraying Captain Ahab, left, and Morgan Smith, portraying Starbuck, perform the opera Moby Dick in San Francisco. "Moby-Dick," a hit at its premiere in Dallas in 2010 and successfully revived several times since, benefits from a savvy libretto by Gene Scheer, which boils down Melville's sprawling novel to a coherent narrative, while maintaining chunks of his poetic language.
