Librettist’s Performance Journal: Sunday

Sunday, 29 April 2018

Great performances last night by everyone! All of the characters were beautifully acted and sung and there was a lot of energy. We had a nice big audience—we basically filled the venue—and lots of positive reactions to the entire production. I think everyone in the cast and crew was pleased as well.

Next, Jessica and I will begin to send out recordings and score samples to other performers and companies who might be interested in doing the opera; Jessica already has had interest in the Four Songs for Lady Macbeth from other singers. Jessica and I have also gotten some queries about collaborating on new works for some of the performers from Marie Curie Learns to Swim, and I’m looking forward to writing for their voices! I have a feeling my future will be one filled with song, and that prospect fills me with joy and excitement.
