Composer and pianist Gregg Kallor talks about the process of adapting Mary Shelley's heartbreaking novel "Frankenstein" into an opera during this multi-media presentation.
The Princeton-based composer will share his thoughts on writing the libretto and composing the music, setting text to music, collaborating with the cast and creative team, and the challenges and successes of composing an opera during a global lockdown.
Gregg Kallor is a composer and pianist whose music fuses the classical and jazz traditions he loves into a new, deeply personal language. Opera News calls Kallor "a rising star in the music world" with "a singular compositional voice." The New York Times writes: "At home in both jazz and classical forms, [Kallor] writes music of unaffected emotional directness."
This event is co-sponsored by Princeton Friends of Opera.
