I’ve written some new music for old friends… If you are up in Maine in the dead of winter, don’t miss this beautiful stage adaptation of Babette’s Feast, based on the Isaak Dinesen short story of the courageous refugee who gives all she has to make a transformative dinner for the closed community in which she finds herself. Directed by Karin Coonrod, and designed by Chris Akerlind, two long-time collaborators of mine. The score includes my beautiful glass tiers – such a sound for the northern climes…
At Portland Stage Jan. 23 – Feb.18 Coming to New York later in 2018.
“Geography” has been years in the making, and for the first time I launched a campaign asking for help to get it finished. The campaign was very successful and the completed CD will be released in the spring of 2018.
I’m thrilled to announce that as a result of the reading last March, the Duffy Institute for New Opera has decided to fund its completion, with a workshop of the entire piece in March of 2018. They flew the librettist over to New York in September for a meeting with all of us, and the work goes apace. I am so grateful for the support. Watch this space!
