On the 2nd Saturday of the month, write with us, act with us, or watch with us. I won't be hosting this time (Stuart and Layne are holding the fort this month) but the party is on.

New Opera

UNTITLED RODEO OPERA in Houston

March 2021 with Houston Grand Opera's HGOco, Houston TX

{I'm writing the libretto for a commissioned chamber opera through Houston Grand Opera's HGOco program!

In my first collaboration with composer Nell Shaw Cohen, we'll be telling an original story about feminism and modern rodeo culture, informed by interviews with contemporary Texans. Yeah, that's right: it's a Feminist. Rodeo. Opera.

Small-town barrel racing champion Shayla Taylor and her sponsor, powerful businesswoman Jamie Mendoza, aim for a big win at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. When tragedy threatens Shayla's career-defining race, the women discover each other's strength in adversity.
