On opera commenting on history: Michael Dellaira’s The Death of Webern


It is now  two months since the Pocket Opera Players premiered under my musical direction Michael Dellaira’s The Death of Webern, alongside John Eaton’s Rerouted, in New York City’s Symphony Space. In a way, both operas commented, one tragically and the other farcically,  on the future of high art. Now Michael Dellaira sends me a wonderful article on his opera that offers both a summary and a context for his insightful work. It is worthy reading for those  opera lovers who missed its premiere.
