A Double-Bill in Aspen

The Aspen Music Festival is giving the first fully staged performances of two one-act operas tomorrow: a fascinating double bill of The Classical Style (Steven Stucky’s debut opera to a libretto by Jeremy Denk) and The Cows of Apollo (the work of Christopher Theofanidis and playwright William Hoffman, the librettist for The Ghosts of Versailles). Aspen’s Music Director Robert Spano conducts the productions, which are being staged by Edward Berkeley.

My essay introducing the two operas can be found here.
