Opera America Presents
Creators in Concert: Paul Moravec
May 1, 7pm
As part of OPERA America’s 2018-19 Onstage at the Opera Center series, Pulitzer Prize winner Paul Moravec will be interviewed by OPERA America President/CEO Marc A. Scorca, alongside performances of his work. Moravec, who has been described as “a masterful musical dramatist” (Opera News), has composed more than a hundred orchestral, chamber, choral, lyric, film and electro-acoustic works.
His recent successes include the opera The Shining, with a libretto by Mark Campbell based on Stephen King’s novel, which premiered at Minnesota Opera in 2016. Moravec’s latest project, Sanctuary Road (featuring a Campbell libretto based on William Still’s The Underground Railroad) was premiered by the Oratorio Society of New York at Carnegie Hall in May 2018.
