North Wind Sings

Reminder that David Bruce‘s new opera Firework-Maker’s Daughter is in its final performances this weekend (Fri-Sun) at the New Victory Theater, tickets from $14 to $38.  The New York Times doesn’t seem to have reviewed it (why?), but here’s a New York Post review of the American premiere last weekend.

To give you a taste of his work, here’s a full video of Bruce‘s song cycle The North Wind was a Woman, performed by Irish soprano Sadhbh Dennedy (what a name!) and Chroma Ensemble at Tête à Tête Opera Festival in London, 2011.
