On the Horizon
Opera America hosts a series called Creators in Concert: on November 12, I’ll be the latest composer/librettist invited to present and discuss some of his work. I’ll be joined by three terrific singers—Leah Wool, William Ferguson, and Philip Cutlip—and a vivid young string quartet from the Juilliard School: we’ll be sharing a sequence from Lysistrata, a performance of Aristotle (a piece I wrote this year for Thomas Hampson and the Jupiter Quartet) and, of course, music from The Gospel of Mary Magdalene in its first New York performance. Come hear! More details here.
