Fort Worth Opera has chosen the opera Nothing in the Nothingness to be performed as part of their 2017 Frontiers showcase. Librettist John Grimmett and I have spent the last eight days in Forth Worth, TX, rehearsing with conductor Stephen Carey, bass-baritone Nate Mattingly, soprano Cristina Castro, and pianist Emily Urbanek. It has been a fabulous experience and I am honored to have been chosen.
“Eight selected works will be presented in the intimate setting of the McDavid Studio at Bass Performance Hall. The 20-minute excerpts, sung by artists from the 2017 Fort Worth Opera Festival with piano accompaniment, will be offered in two separate showcases of four works each on Wednesday, May 3, 2017 at 8:00pm – 10:00pm and Thursday, May 4, 2017 at 8:00pm – 10:00pm. Tickets for the showcases are $10, and can be ordered by calling FWOpera’s Customer Service team at 817.731.0726.” http://www.fwopera.org/operas/frontiers/
