Having worked in the classical music publishing world for years, it’s not surprising that many of my clients (and friends) are musicians and composers. I’ve also had the privilege to design sites for several music publishers in the last 15 years.
Recently one of my composer clients, Paul Moravec (winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Music) completed work on THE SHINING, based on the novel by Stephen King. Paul’s publisher, Subito Music Corporation asked me to work with their team to develop a site focusing on this wonderful new addition to the operatic repertoire.
The result? Opera The Shining.
An intensely visual experience, as well as auditory obviously, the site attempts to give a feel for the full experience as well as providing information for booking information.
Is there room in the standard opera repertoire for a new, American work? Take a look at the site, watch and listen to the trailer, check out the video excerpts … what do you think?
