I’m very excited to be presenting the first two scenes of my chamber opera-in-progress, Eidolon, based on H.D.’s epic poem Helen in Egypt, today at the Longy School of Music’s Pickman Hall. This is the culmination of the last few years that I have spent as an artist-in-residence at Longy, and it promises to be an exciting finale. Sonja Tengblad is singing the lead role of Helen and she sounds fantastic surrounded by some wonderful Longy singers, Charlotte Ensley and Daniel Haaskenson, and a chamber group of Aleksis Martin on clarinet, Ross Jarrell on percussion, and Yvonne Cox on harp. I look forward to sharing the recording here on my website soon. Helen1
