Just a heads up that in this month's issue of Opera News I have a preview piece on Improbable's production of the remarkable 1980 Philip Glass opera, Satyagraha. The work is based on several pivotal years in the life of Mohandas K. Gandhi. Here's the link. Above is a shot from the Improbable world premiere by the English National Opera. Same concept here at the Met, but a different cast. Not sure if you need to be a member or not to read the story online. I'm checking out the production next Monday with my opera-writing partner, Stefan Weisman. Even as I blog, he's hard at work setting my libretto to glorious music. What I'll tell you about it: It's called Fade. It's about 25 minutes. It will premiere this fall in London in a production by Second Movement.
