New opera by Stephen Hartke: "The Greater Good"
« on: July 06, 2007, 12:23:37 PM »
Just saw this very positive review of a new recording of Hartke's The Greater Good (on Naxos), which received many excellent notices when it was produced at Glimmerglass last summer.  The libretto is based on a short story by Guy de Maupassant.  I have heard some of Hartke's orchestral music, and liked it, so this sounds like it could be a winner.
