David Mason and I have begun work on our second opera together, based on his verse-novel Ludlow. In 2009, David received the $40,000 Thatcher Hoffman Smith Award for Creativity in Motion, awarded by The University of Oklahoma. The prize was given to David specifically to create the libretto for our 2nd opera together.

The University of Colorado’s New Opera Works program, run by Leigh Holman, workshopped Act I of Ludlow in June 2012 in Boulder, CO with Beth Greenberg directing. Please see the Opera Page for more information.
