Daron Hagen is one of America's most versatile, prolific, and respected composers. All eight of his major operas are currently in production or revival somewhere in the U.S., Europe, or Asia. His orchestral, chamber, and song catalogues are frequently programmed internationally. Mr. Hagen's activities include stage direction, conducting; and engagements as a collaborative pianist, artistic director, writer, and librettist.
Having finished the vocal score of the opera, composer Hagen discusses balancing engraving, orchestrating and revising duties with other projects, shares early set designs, the addition of Kentucky Opera to the development table, and plans for the multi-media components of the work in progress.
