Librettist Stephen Plaice in Tim Lihoreau's Wednesday Web Chat
26 February 2013, 11:12
In March 2013 Glyndebourne opera is staging Imago, a new community opera. We're talking to librettist Stephen Plaice on Wednesday 27 February at 9am - and you can ask your questions below.
Glyndebourne's latest opera project takes place in the digital age, imagining an online world where the elderly can relive their lives with the help of an online avatar, known as an imago. In the age of Twitter, Facebook and constant connectedness, this opera is an exploration of what it means to live out our lives in cyberspace - with complicated romantic consequences.
How did he get the inspiration for the text? Is there a difference between writing librettos and writing scripts? Does he feel the pressure of creating work in a genre that's often viewed as being 'highbrow'? Tim will be chatting to Stephen from 9am on Wednesday, so post your questions in the comments below.
