  1. Aloha Paula! I don’t know if I will actually be reaching you, but I just found out about this opera. I am absolutely in love. It means so much to me, and I wish I had known about even slightly earlier. I am singing at a LGBT Film Festival this weekend, and it would have been perfect. Atop that, I have not found a contemporary piece for my voice type that I love and which really fits. This fits not only my voice, but me. I have been hunting frantically for the sheet music, at least for an aria. Please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience. I look forward to hearing from you soon! Mahalo
    All the best,
    Danielle Davis

  2. If only we could be there to see this opera again! So many fond memories of the outstanding cast and the beautiful music performed at the Lincoln Center Festival!

    • Veronica, thanks for the good wishes. We are thinking of you too and everyone who helped make the opera. Hopefully it will not be the last opportunity to see it.
