About Jake Heggie

"From prelude to curtain, he draws you to the edge of your seat with a theater artist's deft hand," Opera News wrote of Jake Heggie, one of today's most prolific composers of operas, songs, and chamber, choral and orchestral works. A Guggenheim Fellow, Heggie has served as a mentor for Washington National Opera's American Opera Initiative and is a frequent guest artist at schools and festivals throughout the U.S. and Canada. His first opera, Dead Man Walking, has received more than 40 international productions, and Moby-Dick was telecast throughout the United States as a part of Lincoln Center's Great Performances. Recent commissions include Great Scott for The Dallas Opera, starring Joyce DiDonato, an a cappella work for The King's Singers, and a new work based on It's a Wonderful Life for Houston Grand Opera.
