AOP Executive Director Charles Jarden has a lot to say these days. So much so in fact that people are now required to make reservations to hear him! Mr. Jarden will speak as part of the panel for OPERA America’s Workshop for Composers, Librettists, & Producers to be held in Syracuse (click here for more info). Then in January in Montclair, NJ, Jarden moderates a panel of the creators behind the new opera Elmer Gantry, music by Robert Aldridge and libretto by Herschel Garfein, based on the Sinclair Lewis story (click here for more info). And if that’s not enough for you, you might try finding Charles at an AOP event. He’s been known to lurk around them.
