New in my collection : program book for Huang Ruo's 'Paradise Interrupted'
Yesterday, I have received in the mail the program book published by Spoleto Festival USA for the world première performance of Huang Ruo's new opera, Paradise Interrupted.
It is a 140 pages book including the complete program for all concerts and performances of the 2015 Festival. It contains 8 pages dedicated to Ruo's opera :
- Strangers in Paradise, by Lindsley Miyoshi ;
- complete cast and crew ;
- director's note and synopsis ;
- composer's note ;
- biographies of the creative team members, with B & W photos.
Here is a link to the flickr folder containing the covers of all program books I have for contemporary operas.
