What a night! We want to thank everyone who joined us for our workshop performance of The Reef this past Wednesday, it was a rare opportunity to experience a new opera in its early stages of development. It would not have been possible without the creators - composer Anthony Davis and librettist Joan Ross Sorkin - and all the wonderful artists who brought their work to life, as well as performance sponsors, Ken and Susan Kramer and the National Endowment for the Arts, for their generous support, and reception sponsor, The Mount, Edith Wharton's Home.
