Charlottesville 2002. And 2024

In 2002, Hugh Moffatt and I were working on a large opera, CORPS OF DISCOVERY. It was commissioned and premiered in 2003 by the University of Missouri-Columbia. On the way to the premiere, we had a couple of workshops, including one at what was then called the Ashlawn-Highland Opera Festival at the Monroe estate outside of Charlottesville. 

The opera is now called Charlottesville Opera and I'll be going back there this summer. More about that later.
