Notes & Reviews:

Composer Michael Dellaira and librettist Susan Yankowitz have written Cheri, a musical drama based on the novel by Colette. This recording consists of selections from The Actors Studio Workshop production in 2005. Dellaira chose his favorite musical passages without regard to whether they tell an abridged version of the story. Dellaira is currently composer-in-residence at The Center for Contemporary Opera and is at work on an opera based on Joseph Conrad's novel, 'The Secret Agent', with a libretto by J.D. McClatchy.
