For an insightful window into the innovative approach of pioneering European composer and technologist Michel van der Aa, The Dallas Opera invites the public to Composing Conversations. Keith Cerny, the Kern Wildenthal General Director and CEO of The Dallas Opera, will present the discussion, where audiences can also expect an announcement regarding a new collaboration with the composer.

Michel van der Aa is known for combining musical theater and multimedia in often-astonishing ways, as demonstrated in excerpts from his critically acclaimed Sunken Garden, The Book of Sand, and Black Out (which premiered in this year’s Forward Festival, presented by Dutch National Opera).

Composing Conversations is an ongoing discussions series featuring some of the most noteworthy international composers. The Dallas Opera presents this programming to showcase all types of opera composers, from grand opera to chamber. This series is intended to introduce some of these great talents to the public and to potentially ignite interest in new operatic works.
