RSBE premiere at University of Alabama

Been having a great time at University of Alabama where their opera program will premiere my new opera, RSBE (Remove Shoes Before Entering). In RSBE a group of students and their teacher are on a field trip. They stop at a strange building. Inside they realize things about themselves.

RSBE is put together like SPEED DATING TONIGHT!  with the order of the selection of pieces, their order, and their assignment is up to the producer. I've christened the genre the New Numbers Opera. Premiere is tomorrow night, February 7, 2020.

This clip is from dress rehearsal and about impostor syndrome. The idea was suggested by Dr. Paul Houghtaling, their producer.
