We are so proud to publish our interview with Nico Muhly. To celebrate Pride month we thought we would focus on gay themed operas, and we have 3 very different operas.
- Robert and Hal—Richard Brooks composer, Marcia Elder librettist. An undiscovered opera about a 19th century love story, very “old school gay”
- Patience and Sarah, by Paula Kimper and Wende Persons, a coming out story based on a lesbian pulp non-fiction novel by Isabel Miller.
- “Two Boys” by Nico Muhly and Craig Lucas, which is premiering at the English National Opera this week.
We also discuss Ransom Wilson & Le Train Bleu which performed at Galapagos Space with guest artist Lauren Flanagan.
