Olga Neuwirth (b. 1968)

Surprised to find no thread on this vital composer, one of today's most imaginative. And what better way to kick off things than with the world premiere of Orlando, staged earlier today at the Vienna State Opera. It is the first opera composed by a woman in the company's 150-year history. You can listen to it here:

On December 18, the final performance will be livestreamed from the company's website. (I believe you have to download the VSO's app to view.)
