“Gatsby” in Dresden

John Harbison’s magnificent “The Great Gatsby” is having its first European production at the Semperoper in Dresden. Go here for behind-the-scenes videos and still photos. Nice to see the online material, but did they have to use (unidentified) Gershwin side by side with music from the opera? And shouldn’t the composer have been given a more prominent place in the videos?

  1. Hi Jim – Some of us from Emmanuel are here in Dresden. Michael Beattie, Lynn Torgove, Sarah Schaffer and her husband John, my husband Steve and I have joined John and Rosie. What a thrill to see the work fully realized. The production was FABULOUS!

    Best, Pat
