Fort Worth Opera announced the world premiere of a new opera by MN composer Libby Larsen in 2014.

It's a full-length adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time, based on the hugely popular science fiction novel. The work originated 21 years ago as a one-act children's opera, with libretto by the excellent Twin Cities actor and singer Bradley Greenwald.

More information available at the Dallas edition of Broadway World.
