MORE

To Be Sung is an opera in one act. The libretto was adapted by the composer from a short story by Gertrude Stein; “A Lyrical Opera Made By Two (To Be Sung). As M. Dusapin states, this is my tribute to American literature”. He continues, “To Be Sung is an ambitious piece. “I wanted to write something amniotic, extremely sensitive, that situates listening within an almost metaphysical feeling of understanding through light, that demands to be heard through the mystery of the eye.”
