my daughter's opera in Sao Paulo

Recommended Posts

My daughter Roxie wrote the story and libretto for the 2019 Pulitzer Prize winning opera p r i s m.  The prize, post the premiere in NYC, got them a run at the magnificent Teatro Municipal in Sao Paulo, Brazil.  Here's a pic from a singer's POV during soundcheck in the hall. The composer, Ellen Reid is in white in the center aisle, and Roxie is seated back row right.  It's been quite an experience, tremendous ovations and support from the locals.  Next, the Kennedy Center in March '20.

Congratulations to her!

I can tell from your posts that writing skills run in your family. Well, apparently they run at Olympic level for your daughter!

Fantastic! Congratulations. I'll look forward to seeing it someday. I'm grateful that there are still people composing important works like this - the tradition needs to continue!
