Jake Heggie on his Upcoming Moby-Dick

Composer Jake Heggie is working on an operatic adaptation of Moby-Dick for the opening of the Winspear in spring 2010. Initially, the Dallas Opera’s artistic director didn’t think that was a swell idea. Our Peter Simek talked to Heggie about how it all went down and about how Heggie plans to bring the book to the stage. You, dear opera lover, can read Simek’s tale right here. (See what I did there? Tale? Whale? Rogers!)

    You can also see another Heggie work in May. The Fort Worth Opera is bringing “Dead Man Walking” in, and Sister Helen Prejean and Heggie will also speak around then at SMU.
