Kieren MacMillan: "We're too precious with opera."

Kieren MacMillan: "We're too precious with opera."

Jenna Simeonov

I met composer Kieren MacMillan on a panel for Catherine Kustanczy’s CIUT 89.5FM radio show, Hydra, and I thought he was a man of great ideas. Among other genres, Kieren writes music theatre and music drama/opera; I was curious about the differences in the workshopping process for each. Kieren speaks on the development of new opera from his own experience as a composer, and tells us about what stories are best set to music.
