Wilbur!

A Comic Opera in Two Acts

1985

100 minutes

Libretto by Randall Shinn

For solo voices and orchestra

Withdrawn; replaced by Beautiful Princess Available for Rescue.

Composer Notes: This opera was premiered at Arizona State University in 1986. In 2003 I used Wilbur! as a prototype and created a longer opera titled Beautiful Princess Available for Rescue. The expanded opera focuses on a different character, introduces two new characters, has a new first scene, adds new material throughout, and includes numerous revisions in the words and music.
