Alter Ego Chamber Opera Commission: NASRIN – CENSORED

So excited to be developing this new opera with Ramin Akhavijou, who I also worked with on CMU’s Co-Opera at Pittsburgh Opera. We will be headed to Philadelphia in the spring to workshop NASRIN – CENSORED with the support of Alter Ego Chamber Opera, who will produce it in the fringe festival in fall 2022. I have been learning a lot about the incredible work of real-life heroine Nasrin Sotoudeh, and I’m big-time inspired to write this opera about her. Can’t wait for all my Philly folks to check it out.
