My writing started almost a year ago.I want to atempt something I never tried before but something I had the training to do, write an "opera". I use the term rather loosely because I imagine this work to be a more like an oratorio. Songs based on a story but no costumes or interaction with other characters.
The story I chose is a Hans Christian Andersen story that I was always touched by as a child. The themes have stayed with me for years and even as I work, I'm reminded of how this story carried my emotions into a whirl.
