When Adonis Calls
A new chamber opera gets its first reading at the National Opera Center!
The second portion of the concert will feature Grant and I singing the first three scenes of Clint Borzoni and John de los Santos’s new opera, When Adonis Calls. Based on the poetry of Gavin Geoffrey Dillard, it tells a story of growing passions between the older, established Poet, and the younger Muse–expressed entirely through letters to each other.
This first performance with full scoring (string quartet + percussion) comes after a successful preview a few weeks ago at Fort Worth Opera’s Frontiers festival.
Tickets are available here. I hope to see you there!
