Love/Hate composer and C&V alumnus Jack Perla has been commissioned by Minnesota Opera to compose a new work for the 2012-13 season – the esteemed company’s 50th anniversary. Part of MO’s newly created Minnesota OperaWorks, “a landmark program designed to invigorate the operatic repertoire with an infusion of contemporary works,” Perla’s yet-to-be-announced opera “will be based on an American story in an American genre, well-suited to Jack Perla’s contemporary voice, which is rooted in jazz, fusion and classical traditions.” It is one of three newly commissioned operas announced for production in the next seven seasons through the OperaWorks program.
