New Opera by Alumni Under Consideration for “Aperture”
West Edge Opera

Two UC Davis alumni are among 20 composer-librettist pairs preparing a new opera for consideration to be performed at West Edge Opera’s “Aperture” project. “Aperture” is an online performance space for new opera works, which launches in November of 2020.

Ryan Suleiman, composer (PhD, Music, ‘20), and Cristina Fríes, librettist (M.A., Creative Writing, ‘19), have titled their new work School for Girls Who Lost Everything in the Fire. The piece is a social tale about a group of orphaned girls finding the hope to rebuild their lives in a Catholic school in the aftermath of destruction amid mysterious phenomena.

Suleiman and Fríes previously collaborated on Moon, Bride, Dogs.
