The Living Libretto: Opera in Eden

  • The National Opera Center 330 7th Avenue, 7th floor New York, NY, 10001 United States (map)

The Living Libretto: Opera in Eden gives audiences a first glimpse at 3 new one-act operas being written by first year CLDP resident artists, all with underlying themes of temptation. The libretti are read by professional actors, followed by discussion with the writers. Moderated by ALT’s Producing Artistic Director Lawrence Edelson, these discussions between the audience, composers and librettists explore dramatic structure, characterization, and timing of action in opera vs. spoken drama, providing audiences with a unique perspective into the early stages of each opera’s development.
