This event is in the past
Wed, Mar 15, 7 - 8 pm
Literary Arts Southwest Portland (Portland)
This is an in-person event
Thumbprint composer Kamala Sankaram, “one of the most exciting opera composers in the country" (Washington Post), will explore the creative process behind her contemporary operatic work alongside librettist and co-creator Susan Yankowitz. (Thumbprint heads to Newmark Theatre later this month; the forward-thinking production blends traditional Hindustani and western classical music to tell the story of pioneering Pakistani human rights activist Mukhtar Mai.) This conversation will be moderated by Priti Gandhi, Portland Opera's artistic director.
