Just popping in here to say that the reaction to In a Grove has been wildly more positive than I could have imagined. So far it’s been called “brilliant,” (Classical Voice America) “outstanding,” (Pittsburgh Post Gazette) “alluring,” (WSJ) “world-class,” (onStage Pittsburgh), and “a revelation” (Pittsburgh Quarterly).
Most importantly, the audiences have taken to it like wildfire, selling out almost all of the performances. We close tomorrow night and it’s been an incredible run. I can’t wait to bring this work to LA Opera (who commissioned it) and beyond.
