Notes & Reviews:

Strawberry Fields had its premiere performance at Glimmerglass Opera in Cooperstown in New York. The libretto, by A.R. Gurney, features a gently comic stories of a confused old lady who imagines she is in the front seat at the opera while sitting on a bench in Central Park. A master orchestrator whose shimmering timbral palette makes him the Ravel of his generation. - New York Times A moving work - at the opening performance, tears in the audience flowed nearly as plentiful as on a good Madame Butterfly night. - New York Newsday
