Meet the Composer: Mary Kouyoumdjian

Mary Kouyoumdjian describes her pathway to becoming a composer and the genesis of her latest opera, Adoration, based on the film by Atom Egoyan and written in collaboration with librettist Royce Vavrek.

Adoration earned Beth Morrison Projects a 2018 Commissioning Grant. The grant was awarded through OPERA America’s Opera Grants for Female Composers program, which is funded by the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation. Since its inception in 2013, the program has awarded nearly $1 million to support the development of operas by women.
