Amelia: The Libretto Process

Amelia librettist Gardner McFall compiled a video (originally initiated and posted on YouTube by University of Washington Press, the publisher) describing her process in writing this work. As the opera is based on McFall's life experiences, the video includes Gardner's thoughts as well as personal photos and letters that all contributed to the story.

Watch the video to catch a glimpse into the life of Gardner McFall and into the story of Amelia. Thank you for sharing this with us all, Gardner!

Hallo, SeaOp!
Hopefully, Ms. McFall's annotated libretto will be available in the SeaOp's "Gift Shop" @ the McCaw!
Tschüß,
