I'm working on an opera called "The Art of Memory" with best friend and librettist Miriam Seidel. Art of Memory re-imagines two early Christians, Augustine and Ambrose, in 4th-century Milan. But these two men (sung by women) reflect our “now”—the eerie mirror of the crumbling Roman empire, Ambrose’s nonviolent resistance to intolerance and Augustine’s struggle for spiritual absolution—singing, the art of memory, saves them both.
