What’s new in the world of Opera? Well, this weekend, the SARASOTA OPERA will be performing a brand-new Youth Opera titled, “Little Nemo in Slumberland”. The story is inspired by Winsor McCay’s Newspaper Comic Strip of the same name, which ran from 1905 to 1914. This new Opera was written by librettist J.D. McClatchy (see photo down below).

Here’s a fun photo we wanted to share real quick. On a recent trip to Los Angeles, California Chip Kidd got to meet Movie Director, Screenwriter, TV Producer, etc… J. J. Abrams! Hey, is that the American Poet J. D. McClatchy in the background?
Fans of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart will totally love this wonderful lecture series by Poet J. D. McClatchy. His witty English-language libretto of Mozart’s “The Magic Flute” has become a holiday favorite at The Metropolitan Opera. He has now translated seven of the libretti, including The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni and Cos Fan Tutte. To celebrate the publication of his translations, Mr. McClatchy is joined by Met singers for an evening of readings and Classical Music performance. This video was recently published & it was recorded at the 92nd Street Y on December 1st, 2010.
