Dana Harden has been working on a new opera based on William Blake’s Milton. There will be two semi-staged productions of part 1 (The Bard’s Song) of the opera, at 3 pm, 25 and 26 November 1995 at the Boulder Public Library Auditorium in Boulder, Colorado.
Along with Harden’s score and libretto, Blake’s art work and original set designs will be projected on a 20 × 20 foot screen behind the singers and actors. Blake’s language of gestures will be incorporated into the choreography. Funding is needed to further stage this production and the rest of Milton next year. This will include developing “Virtual Sets” based on Blake’s artwork and creating the libretto and staging. Audio and video recordings of the upcoming November performance will be available upon request. Please contact Dana Harden at (303) 530-7617, Golgonooza Productions, PO Box 19614, Boulder, CO, 80301-2614 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org (soon to be email@example.com).
