I leave for Havana this coming Thursday, for a week. I will meet with Jorge Fernandez, Director of the Havana Biennale, to plan details for the May performance. I will meet a theatre director who is interested in directing the opera. Composer Roberto Valera and I will review the piano/vocal score, which is nearly done. And I’ll spend time with Music Director Zenaida Romeu to begin identifying players, singers, and other members of the creative team.
Stay tuned for updates from Cuba.
