A multi-media presentation of Vikram's Seth's The Golden Gate as Novel in Verse and Opera that includes readings of Seth's verse, a video of a 2010 staged workshop of the opera at Lincoln Center, and a discussion with composer Conrad Cummings.
The homecoming is long overdue: The Golden Gate, Vikram Seth's 1986 novel-in-verse, was born among Stanford's sandstone buildings and palm trees. Now the Bay Area has a chance to hear highlights of composer Conrad Cummings' opera of the novel. John Henry Davis, who directed the Lincoln Center workshop production, also directs the Stanford program. Seth provides a video welcome.
