Upcoming Performance: *Pacific Pleasures*, an opera.

I have composed a one-act opera called Pacific Pleasures (with libretto by Jorge Balça), which will be performed by Bloomsbury Opera company on March 25th and 26th in London. More information can be found here and on the poster below. 17159237_262559437526537_2985126229500355757_o

Pacific Pleasures (2016-17) is a prequel to Leonard Bernstein’s Trouble in Tahiti (1952),
which tells the story of a married couple living together in suburban America.
They are both desperately unhappy in their relationship and frequently argue.
In contrast to this, Pacific Pleasures tells the story of how this soon-to-be married
couple were born, met, fell in love, and got married.
