Arjuna’s Dilemma at Dallas Opera

Douglas Cuomo’s original opera Arjuna’s Dilemma was given a presentation this month at The Dallas Opera as part of the Opera America conference. The production was a slimmed down version from the original (BAM Next Wave 2008), but did include my original video projection design. There’s a nice write-up here in the Dallas News by Scott Cantrell – “Dallas Opera’s ‘Arjuna’s Dilemma’ realizes Hindu legend in a mix of Indian and Western musical styles”

It’s 44 minutes of instrumental, electronic music. The songs were written and recorded in dedication to 8 Kickstarter backers of Pop Meets the Void who pitched in big to help fund the movie.
