Next month, librettist Megan Cohen and I head back to Houston for the first music workshop of Turn and Burn—our chamber opera commissioned by Houston Grand Opera’s HGOco for premiere in Spring 2021.

Four days of work with our performers and directors will culminate in a presentation on December 9th of the complete 75-minute score, drafted for a reduced orchestration of piano, guitar, and drums. Revisions and orchestration will follow, leading to a full score workshop in May 2020.

I can’t wait to share the fruits of this process with you all!
