Opera’s Composer, Stephen Paulus, Lauds BU’s The Postman Always Rings Twice

1252075-postman-020311The Boston University College of Fine Arts presented Stephen Paulus’s The Postman Always Rings Twice, this past week on the mainstage of the Boston University Theatre. The opera featured conductor William Lumpkin, stage director Jim Petosa, singers from the School of Music Opera Institute and vocal program, and accompaniment by the BU Chamber Orchestra, with production design by students from the School of Theatre. Colin Graham’s libretto was sung in English.

I am grateful to Stephen Paulus for spending time with our students.  I know that he was very happy with the results, placing it above professional productions of the opera.  I look forward to having  him work with our students in the future.

Congratulations to all of those who worked on this collaboration between the School of Music and the School of Theatre.
