Trudeau opera news spreading fast

News travels fast. My Trudeau opera collaborator, librettist George Elliott Clarke, just did an interview for the CBC on our upcoming new opera. It was posted to the CBC website (I've put up a copy of it in the Press section of my website) and within hours was being quoted in newspapers from as far away as India and even North Korea (!) Also look out for an interview I just did by phone with Canada's National Post, which should be appearing soon. In the meantime, I've put up a demo of the opening number from the opera in the downloads sections of my website. Enjoy!
