* MONDAY MARCH 15TH – NEW CHAMBER OPERA

I am thrilled to announce work on a new chamber opera I will be premiering on Texas Public Radio’s Daystream series this April. It’s the first new work I’ll direct in over a year since the pandemic hit. While I’ve kept myself busy recording my new piano album, scoring a feature film and shooting new experimental films, I have sorely missed creating and producing my live concerts. To be honest I miss rehearsals the most because I miss the camaraderie and the collective process of collaboratively creating a new production. My new chamber opera is a 25 minute, 3-act, chamber opera titled, Ribas-Dominicci, and has been written to premiere on Texas Public Radio in San Antonio on April 30th 2021. It’s a story about love and sacrifice in memory of Fernando Luis Ribas-Dominicci, a Major and pilot in the United States Airforce who participated in the air raid as a member of the 48th Tactical Fighter Wing and was shot down in action over the disputed Gulf of Sidra off the Libyan coast on April 15th 1986. The family of Ribas-Dominicci, now resides in San Antonio and whose son, Fernando Ribas-Berrain, is one of my closest friends since we were teenagers. Together with my friend Fernando and his mom Blanca, I’ll be adapting a full length opera that I hope to premiere in 2022.
