FINALE from ANNA HUNTER
For my second opera at Savannah Voice Festival, Maria Zouves asked if I might try to incorporate a fugue into the finale. This is a video from the premiere at the historic Davenport House Museum. The subject is "Sometimes you need a little knock on the head to move forward." There are playful references to Beethoven and to my previous opera for SVF, ALICE RYLEY. The two operas will eventually be done together, so it makes sense to bring the first opera back around.
