NEWS - THE MAN IN THE BLACK SUIT
I now have gotten confirmation from Eve Beglarian that the libretto for The Man in the Black Suit is complete. She told me that I've begun the music; the plan is to have a workshop with music in april or may of 2002.
She also told me that she has a song based on a single line from IT. An mp3 demo of the song is on her website. This is not the final version, but it gives you an idea of the song...
You can listen to it here. Just click on the link: all ways (2001) mp3.
I e-mailed Eve Beglarian (the woman who started work on the opera for Stephen King's Man in the Black Suit about a year ago) about the status of the opera and here is what she responded with:
The libretto for the opera is now complete (co-wrtten by Eve Beglarian and Grethe Holby), and I am beginning work on the music this winter.
Thanks for your interest,
