judgment of midas at OPERA America new works forum, january 2014

American Opera Projects’ Judgment of Midas (by composer Kamran Ince and librettist Miriam Seidel) returned this January, making an appearance on behalf of Schott Music at OPERA America’s New Works Forum on January 14th.

Conrad Chu conducted, with Abigail Fischer, David Gordon, Jennifer Goltz-Taylor, Philip Horst, David Schmidt and Jeffrey Tucker in the lead roles, supported by an eight-person chorus. It was almost three years to the day since the last time I played for Midas, at an early workshop in January 2011, and the orchestral reduction always provides plenty of opportunities to “color” the piano.
