New Wave Of Composers At The Met
I'm not much of an aficionado of opera -- that's biboy's department. But I do try to keep up with contemporary composers and always try to get tickets to any new opera staged by the Met. That's just become a lot more difficult with its new head: the Met is going to be commissioning a lot more operas down the road. The New York Times mentions Rufus Wainwright (who loves opera, but should be working on a musical first), Michael John la Chuisa, Mary Zimmerman, Wynton Marsalis, Adam Guettel and more "traditional" names like John Adams and Scott Wheeler. Maybe it's time to buy a season subscription?
