To Be Sung @ Irondale Center
May 17 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
To Be Sung is an opera in one act.  The libretto was adapted by the composer from a short story by Gertrude Stein; “A Lyrical Opera Made By Two (To Be Sung).  As M. Dusapin states, this is my tribute to American literature”.  He continues, “To Be Sung is an ambitious piece. “I wanted to write something amniotic, extremely sensitive, that situates listening within an almost metaphysical feeling of understanding through light, that demands to be heard through the mystery of the eye.”

Sorrows of Frederick @ Irondale Theater
May 18 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

The Sorrows of Frederick uses modern language to create a darkly comic opera (in the sense that Don Giovanni is a “comic drama” dealing with evil and death) based on the life of King Frederick the Great of Prussia.
