Former Taos Instructor Joseph Skibell's first novel, "A Blessing On the Moon," is being performed as an Opera!
The novel, which came out in 1999, received tremendous acclaim: the Richard and Hinda Rosenthal Foundation Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, it was named A Book of the Month Club selection and one of the year's best books by Publishers Weekly, Le Monde and Amazon.Com.
Now, the novel has inspired composer Andy Tierstein to turn the story into music. Pretty cool. You can find out more about the Opera, and listen to the music, at this link.
