Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on writing the libretto for a new opera ('For You': 2008)] What I've discovered and really confirmed to myself is that opera really likes loud colours, and you need something bold, something savage, unpredictable, passionate. You can't really run a two-hour opera round some muted murmuring. See more »
