See Caitlin's World Premiere: Nullipara
July 13 & 14 2018
Join us for Nullipara, a world premiere by D. J. Sparr (composer) and Caitlin Vincent (librettist).
Caitlin Vincent is an American librettist and lyricist whose writing has been praised as “nuanced and honest” (DC Theatre Scene), “intriguing” (The Baltimore Sun), and “a luminous standout” (The Huffington Post). Her opera Better Gods, with composer Luna Pearl Woolf, premiered in January 2016 at the Kennedy Center as part of Washington National Opera’s American Opera Initiative. In 2017, Vincent and composer Douglas Buchanan won the prestigious Sackler Music Composition Prize, which will fund a new opera about Bessie Coleman, the first African-American female aviator, and Miriam "Ma" Ferguson, the first female governor of Texas, for a premiere in 2019. A classically-trained soprano, Vincent graduated cum laude from Harvard University and holds a Master of Music degree from the Peabody Conservatory. She is currently pursuing a PhD at Deakin University.
