Deborah receives opera commission

Deborah has been commissioned to write the libretto for an opera that will be produced by On Site Opera, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Lyric Theater about Lady Murasaki, who wrote The Tale of Genji, the world’s first-ever novel. It will be performed in the Astor Pavilion at the Met in May 2019 to coincide with the opening of their new Genji exhibit. The composer is Michi Wiancko who was awarded one of Opera America’s grants for Female composers for this project.
