The Act

2010 | soprano, tenor and piano

Poem by H.L. Hix. This is a theatre piece, and can be considered a very short opera. The work is approximately 5 minutes long and should be staged. This intriguing poem is about a circus knife thrower and his wife.

This song was commissioned by The Sorel Organization as part of a grant to New Triad of Collaborative Arts for their retrospective of my music at SongFest 2010 in Malibu, CA. The work premiered June 19, 2010 at Pepperdine University in Malibu, with tenor Blaise Pascal, soprano Andrea Leyton-Mange and pianist Andrew Rosenblum.
