Dallas Opera orders new Heggie-McNally work

The Dallas Opera has announced that it has commissioned another new, full-length opera by the creators of “Moby-Dick,” a work that made its world premiere in 2010.

According to a statement issued Tuesday, Jake Heggie, one of America’s pre-eminent composers, has been commissioned to adapt Terrence McNally’s original story “Great Scott” into an opera. McNally, a Tony Award-winning playwright, will write the libretto.
