Here’s Stewart Copeland at last year’s premiere explaining why opera is a lot like South Park, and why there’s nothing about opera that a good new opera can’t fix.
On March 17, 24, and 25 the Long Beach Opera will present The Invention of Morel in its west coast debut. I orchestrated it for composer Stewart Copeland, and it took about two years to complete. It was premiered last year by the Chicago Opera Theater. Conducted by the great Andreas Mitisek and with a brilliant cast, you’ve probably never seen anything quite like it. I highly recommend it.
