An opera composer devoted to revolutionizing the art form, centering communities who are rarely seen on the operatic stage, and telling the stories of today's people with exciting and innovative techniques.
A media composer smashing together the elegance of old-world operatic leitmotif technique with gripping modern electronic soundscapes.
A songwriter bringing eclectic interests together in a diverse catalog of musical theater, fluidly slipping between classic Broadway stylings, progressive rock and metal, cinematic folk, and more surprises around every turn.
