6 Scenes

Composers & the Voice 2008 culminates in 6 scenes, presented october 3 & 4 at AOP’s home base, the South Oxford Space. Included on this program will be about 25 minutes of Love/Hate, the new one act chamber opera I’m composing for AOP and ODC Theater. The librettist for Love/Hate is my dear friend & longtime musical collaborator, Rob Bailis.  Here’s Rob’s description…

Watch the celebrity death match as a college professor, lesbian pole stripper, bi-curious george, cassanova, and other characters duke it out for love. It’s a little like Canterbury Tales meets Milan Kundera, with a splash of Dr. Ruth – “each” relationship is “every” relationship; the devil is in the details.  Reveling in our  paradoxical mating methodologies, roiling at the ironic isolation of point and click social lives, “Love/Hate” posits an old paradigm for a new era.
