Still alive and rockin

June 15, 2012

Forgive me: I am rushing to finish Act 1 before Mitchell arrives for a visit next week. He promises to have Act 2 (libretto) finished, and I, Act 1 music. Seems fair.

Even more exciting is that the acclaimed poet, Francisco X. Alarcón, has agreed to write the Spanish version of the opera for its Mexican premiere. Francisco will also be here next week for a meeting with Mitchell and me. I will play all the music I have to date for them both, we will talk and plan and laugh and eat.

The opera is going really well. It just seems like one hit after another as we go along. But I guess I’m prejudiced. But really, it rocks!
