Opera Librettist

Opera is one of most tangible examples of the willing suspension of disbelief — using the human singing voice to tell a story. New works in the singing theater should incorporate what we have learned about storytelling, identity, relevance and stagecraft, illuminating why characters sing rather than speak. Form, shape and concision in the libretto are essential, always making room for music and the voice to tell the story.
