SISYPHUS and New Music Gathering!
Dear Friends – it’s been a little while since writing here vs my more recent Facebook littering. Feels much more intimate and quiet. I’ll grab my smoking jacket and sit by the fire and tell you very softly about what’s going on lately.
In January, Blarvuster performed in San Francisco at the New Music Gathering with a nice write up following
But mostly, I am here to urge any late decision makers to come out to SISYPHUS, a genre-bending opera I co-composed in collaboration with Jason Cady and Aaron Siegel – a wallop –packed event striking at the quintessence of how Experiments in Opera operates. Here are some reviews from New YorkClassical Review and StageBuddy.
Those that made it to SISYPHUS last weekend loved it, you will too!

Join us in HELL!
There’s more to the myth of Sisyphus than a man pushing a boulder up a hill. In this new, collaboratively-composed evening-length opera, the famous story is twisted, pulled apart, and reassembled in a collage of characters, genres and questions. Sisyphus features texts and music by the three founders of Experiments in Opera: Jason Cady, Aaron Siegel, and Matthew Welch.
