Not book-related, just feeling grateful about spending the day in such a beautiful space. 😍 #DetroitLove #MittenLitten #SeeMoreOpera

JamieArc I got to see The Nutcracker there just before the pandemic hit. Such a beautiful space! 12mo

Research, research, research! I love when a work day involves so many good books; currently prepping presentations and lectures in conjunction with a production of Robert Xavier Rodriguez's opera "Frida". #SeeMoreOpera #SeeMoreTheatre

"Work" today means a 12-hour performance art piece in a now disused, once glorious, Detroit theatre. Ragnar Kjartansson's BLISS takes three minutes from Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro and loops it, with live singers and orchestra, for twelve hours. We're at the halfway point and I'm still enchanted- though feeling for my performer colleagues! #SeeMoreOpera #MittenLitten

I'm deep into research mode as the company I work for is getting ready to present a new production of Anthony Davis' opera "X: The Life and Times of Malcolm X" next spring. And of course as part of the process, I'll also return to Spike Lee's biopic starring #DenzelWashington. #MoviesInMay #SeeMoreOpera

After 7 months of working from home, 7 months without live performances, my company is producing opera again! Tonight we open a "drive-thru" opera, an immersive performance/installation adaptation of Wagner's Götterdämmerung, where, in true Detroit fashion, Brunhilde rides off in a Ford Mustang. I am so proud of my incredible colleagues and so overjoyed to be part of bringing the arts to life once again. #SeeMoreOpera #SeeMoreTheatre #MittenLitten

BarbaraBB Wow that sounds really good! 2y
quietjenn I hope all goes well! 2y
Lcsmcat Cool! What do you do with the Detroit Opera? 2y
Andrea313 @Lcsmcat I'm the Director of Education. 🙂 2y
Lcsmcat @Andrea313 Cool. My husband and I are both classical musicians and so many of our friends are out of work now. It‘s good to hear of a company figuring out alternatives. 2y
Andrea313 @quietjenn @TrishB @LiteraryinLititz @BarbaraBB @sharread Thanks for the kind words. It was a wonderful opening! ❤️🎵🎶 2y
Andrea313 @Lcsmcat Wow, I love it! Are you instrumentalists? What do you play? 2y
Lcsmcat @Andrea313 I was an oboist, but I don‘t play professionally anymore. My husband was the bass trombonist with the Utah Symphony and Opera for 22 years, but now he‘s a church musician. He‘s been engineering music for live streamed services from tracks we record individually, so we‘re both working. But a lot of our friends aren‘t in as good a place. 2y
Andrea313 @Lcsmcat Yes, I have definitely seen how completely awful this year has been for many friends and colleagues. It's so hard. I have been working on reduced hours, but am working just the same, and I count myself as incredibly lucky. Sending you and yours all the best from afar! ❤️🎶 2y
BarbaraBB Cool job you have 👌🏽 2y
KVanRead How fabulous! 2y

Did you know that #ToniMorrison co-created an opera? She was the librettist for the opera Margaret Garner, which was co-commissioned by my hometown opera company, and which had its world premiere in Detroit. #AugustAuthors #seemoreopera #detroitlove #MittenLitten

Last weekend, my company opened Sondheim's #masterpiece Sweeney Todd. It's been so much fun to to spend the last few weeks deep inside this story and its lurid literary history! #Movember #seemoretheatre #seemoreopera
