[Richard Thompson]

On Sept. 14, 2009 AfriClassical posted: “'The Mask in the Mirror', Chamber Opera by British-Born Black Composer Richard Thompson, Sept. 19, 2009.” More recently, we wrote of selected scenes being presented by Empire Opera.

John Malveaux of writes:

Trilogy: An Opera Company has scheduled pianist-composer Richard Thompson's chamber opera 'The Mask In The Mirror' for August 4, 2012. The opera is based on the courtship and marriage of poet Paul Laurence Dunbar and Alice Ruth Moore

Hi Bill,  Thanks so much for the blog. Just one thing, the performance date is August 4, not 2. I am hoping that lots of people will come, of course. Right now the Trilogy Opera Co. website just lists the title and the date.  They will add more info nearer the time. The artistic director is Kevin Maynor, the well known African-American bass.  Do keep in touch.  Best Wishes, Richard Thompson
