Dallas Opera Commissions Moby-Dick‘s Heggie and Scheer For Song Cycle Featuring Baritone Nathan Gunn

The Dallas Opera has announced that it will re-commission Moby-Dick composer Jake Heggie and librettist Gene Scheer for a new song cycle that will have its world premiere at the Dallas Opera’s 2011 Gala. The subject of the new songs is still confidential, the opera says, but Heggie has mentioned numerous times over the past two years while working on Moby-Dick that he wants to continue to explore the music and thematic material of the opera by creating a series of songs based around the Ahab’s many soliloquies in Herman Melville’s classic novel. The new music will be performed in 2011 by baritone Nathan Gun, who appeared last year in the Dallas Opera’s Don Pasquale. A full release is after the jump.
