2019 season is a large opera development year for me!
Edward Tulane will be workshopped throughout the year at Minnesota Opera with librettist Mark Campbell and director Eric Simonsson; I begin Film Stills, an opera series with R.B. Schlather, Royce Vavrek, and Eve Gigliotti in development at National Sawdust; Sensorium Ex, a new chamber opera with text by Brenda Shaughnessy, commissioned and produced in consortium with Beth Morrison Projects and Atlanta Opera will begin development; and Silent Light, a new opera with Thaddeus Strassberger and Royce Vavrek will be workshopped at Banff. In terms of multimedia works, I begin working on The Amazon, a new live performance/film eco-documentary, and my work Sisters for Brooklyn Youth Chorus goes to the New Victory Theater on Broadway and to the Kennedy Center. Stay tuned for more projects!
