The Living Libretto: Opera in Eden gives audiences a first glimpse at three new one-act operas being written by first year resident artists in American Lyric Theater’s Composer Librettist Development Program (CLDP) :
BLOODLINES (Libretto by Lila Palmer; Music by Shuying Li)
THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO NANA (Libretto by Lorene Cary; Music by Liliya Ugay)
THE TREE OF ETERNAL YOUTH (Libretto by Julian Crouch; Music by Andy Teirstein)
The event will be moderated by Founder and Producing Artistic Director Lawrence Edelson, and will feature a discussion between the audience and the creative teams of each opera.
All ticket holders are invited to a pre-performance wine and cheese reception and to meet the creative artists of the CLDP.
