In the Works

Editor's Note: A Listing of New Works and Works in Progress www.operaamerica.org/artists/newworks/index.html While traditional operas remain an important staple at many opera companies, artists and audiences alike benefit from exploring new works. The decades that spawned some of the great masterworks, particularly in the mid- to late 1800s, saw the creation of thousands of new operas. By celebrating and encouraging today’s composers and librettists, we increase the chances of producing great works for the 21st century.

To raise awareness of works being created by individual and organizational members, OPERA America maintains an online database of North American opera and music-theater. The Baisley Powell Elebash Score and Recording Library, a non-circulating collection housed in OPERA America’s New York office, is available to members who wish to peruse materials.

Works in progress, along with those that received a major workshop or premiere during the past two years, are featured in the fall and spring issues of Opera America magazine. More details about these works (including vocal/musical forces, contact information and more) can be found online at www.operaamerica.org/artists/newworks/index.html.

OPERA America members can submit listings to OPERA America’s New Works Directory by visiting http://www.operaamerica.org/artists/newworks/faq.html.


Alexandra
By Zack Settel and Yan Muckle

Set to premiere during the 2010-2011 season at Chants Libres, Alexandra chronicles the life of Alexandra David-Néel (1868-1969). An anarchist, opera singer, journalist, freemason, feminist, free thinker, reporter, lover of the Orient, philosopher and explorer, she was the first Western woman to enter the forbidden Lhassa, Tibet in 1924. This one-hour chamber opera uses her life and writings to touch upon the themes of courage, righteousness and wisdom.
