Judgment of Midas, an opera in two acts, will have it's concert version premiere in Milwaukee, April 12, 13, 2013 with Present Music and Opera Theatre Milwaukee. It is commissioned by Crawford Greenewalt, Jr. III, to mark the 50th anniversary of Sardis/Lydia excavations, sponsored by Harvard and Cornell Universities. We will also record the work at the same time. All this is a culmination of ten years of work on this opera by myself, librettist Miriam Seidel and American Opera Projects.
