Thanks to Jacqueline Halbloom at IPR for doing a great job making me seem lucid for this radio interview I did about my upcoming opera, EIGHT WOODS AND A VAN, for the Cedar Rapids Opera. Here's a link to the interview.
EIGHT WOODS AND A VAN is about the artist Grant Wood. I've used eight of his works of art as a point of departure along with one by Jan van Eyck.
If I had the chance to make the opera longer, I would have liked to include Grant Wood's WOMAN WITH PLANTS.
