Today, Lori Laitman's new children opera in one act, The Three Feathers, with a libretto by Dana Gioia after a Grimm's fairytale, will receive its first performance in Blacksburg (VA).
The Three Feathers creates a mysterious world inhabited by a king, his three princess daughters, and courtiers; and the fantastical underworld kingdom of the Frog Prince and his chorus of rats, bats, and frogs. (reproduced from https://www.artscenter.vt.edu/)
Composer Lori Laitman has already a new opera in store, The Scarlet Letter, after Nathaniel Hawthorne. It will be first performed by Opera Colorado in May 2016.
