From the Page to the Stage: Creating New Operas

Saturday, Sep 28, 2013 2:00p to 4:00p

In this interactive workshop, composer Tobias Picker (Dolores Claiborne) will help us understand the evolution of a new opera in the 2000s, from getting a commission to choosing a subject to collaborating with a librettist. San Francisco Opera Director of Music Administration Kip Cranna will moderate the session and discuss commissions from an opera company’s point of view. Audio/video examples will illustrate how operas build on their literary sources and transform them into a new art form.
