Conversations with Composers: Jake Heggie

Tagged Under: 2017.18 Season, Classics, Conversations with Composers

We met up with Jake Heggie, composer of the opera Moby-Dick, for an inside look at transforming the classic American novel into an opera, and on working with this weekend’s conductor Cristian Măcelaru on the orchestral suite. Get a behind-the-scenes look at the work before you experience it live with the MSO in the first part of our Conversations with Composers video series.
