New Five:15 - Opera in Scotland

Scottish Opera is taking a new approach to creating new opera - Five:15, that is to say, five opera's each 15 minutes in length. Last year their pilot program was a huge success and produced some wonderful pieces. I am looking forward to their plans this year.

They announced the collaborators for this year (performances next February) with some amazing names on the list. No, I name isn't one of them. However, considering I am still relatively unknown as a composer, I'm not even sure I made it on to their list of potentials. Looking at the bios for the people they did select (see link above) I'm pretty sure I wasn't on any list.

Well, there's always next year.
