Interview with librettist, Emily Anderson

We are so fortunate to have so many talented people in Knoxville, TN. Artists of all kinds; musicians, actors, singers, authors, painters, sculptors, and so many more! What a better way to celebrate that than to commission and produce a World Premeire about a painter who grew up in Knoxville before moving to New York and Paris. Shadowlight is about Knoxville's own, Beauford Delaney and we are so excited to bring this opera by Larry Delinger and Emily Anderson to Knoxville this month!

Shadowlight is the third production Marble City Opera has produced using operas that Emily has written the libretto for. The first was another World Premiere; Follow Suit by Griffin Candey and Emily Anderson, and the other was just this season; City of Ashes by Evan Fein and Emily Anderson. Take a listen to this conversation I had with Emily about our upcoming collaboration, Shadowlight!
