David Starobin (BM ’73, Guitar) and Becky Starobin (BM ’73, Violin) wrote the libretto for an opera, The Thirteenth Child, which was previewed at the Guggenheim Museum in New York during a “Works and Process” event that explored how the librettists, composer, and creative team worked to bring this opera to life. The opera was composed by Poul Ruders. The full work will be premiered at Santa Fe Opera on July 27 of this year.
