Westergaard: Alice in Wonderland / Michael Pratt, Center for Contemporary Opera [DVD]

Album Summary

>Westergaard, Peter : Alice in Wonderland
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

As the composer says, "No question about it, this is a curious sort of opera. There's no orchestra, just seven singers, singing 41 roles and providing their own accompaniment on- and off-stage, with voices, hand bells, bird whistles, drums, and occasional sound effects." This DVD presents the world premiere recording of Westergaard's Alice in Wonderland. A professor emeritus at Princeton University, Westergaard has been making operas - his own and others - happen for 55 years. He directed the Princeton University Opera Theatre and founded the Opera Festival of New Jersey. His opera, Moby Dick, has been released on Albany Records.
