  1. Brooke mentions “Connection Lost: the Tinder Opera in the episode. I happen to be the composer and one of the performers of the work. It just won Best Score at the Kerry Film Festival in Ireland and will be produced for the stage next week by Opera Carolina with Menotti’s The Telephone and Barber’s A Hand of Bridge. Please check out the YouTube video. Our second piece, Something Blue (L’opera del Bachelor) is even more ambitious and will be released on Dec 14th.
