What’s it like to premiere a new opera about the Historic city of Savannah? We asked our creative team behind the Anna Hunter project about their experiences with this legacy.
Michael Ching, Composer of Anna Hunter
Tell us a little about yourself.
I’m a composer, lyricist, librettist, and songwriter based in Iowa.
How does is feel performing in a world premiere in a role nobody else has ever created before?
With the same cast for a May reading and an August workshop, I’ve been able to tweak the opera for the performers, especially Maria, who plays Anna.
