Charismatic counter-tenor David Daniels, who has worked closely with Morrison over many years and was instrumental in the development of the project, portrays Oscar. Kevin Newbury directs a cast which also features Heidi Stober, William Burden and Dwayne Croft. Evan Rogister conducts. Commissioned by Santa Fe Opera and Opera Philadelphia, Oscar premieres July 27 – August 17 in Santa Fe.
